Nash Rec Center Hours will be changing in May!

Apr 15th, 2019

The Oregon Park District performed an overall facility usage review as part of its annual budgeting process.  The result of the study showed a reduced facility usage period between the hours of 8 and 9 pm on weekdays.  The overall facility visits, on a daily average between the hours of 8-9 pm, was under 11 users per weekday.  The facility operation cost for the final hour of each weekday was too large to support such a low facility usage period.  The financial decision was made to close the facility one hour earlier during the week.

Effective May 1, 2019, Nash Recreation Center facility hours will be as follows:

Monday-Friday:                        5:30 am – 8:00 pm

Saturday:                                     7:00 am – 4:00 pm

Sunday*:                                     12:00 pm – 6:00 pm       *Closed on Sundays May – October

The District’s Pool Schedule will minimally change with the updated facility hours, and the Summer Pool Schedule will be released at the end of May.

Along with new facility hours, the Nash Fitness Center will also see some changes.  The Fitness Center is a heavily used area of the facility with over 140 users per weekday.  Most of the traffic occurs during specific hours of the day, specifically during the early morning and mid afternoon.  Effective May 1, the Fitness Center will no longer be staffed during low usage times.  Building Supervisors will routinely cycle through the fitness center for safety and cleaning purposes.

The Oregon Park District is committed to providing quality recreational services to our community. The long-term savings to the District will assist in continuing the operations and maintenance of the Nash Rec Center well into the future.  Overall Facility Usage will continue to be tracked and the data will be reviewed and analyzed for the benefit of the community.  If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact our office at 815-732-3101 or info@oregonpark.org.
