Parks and recreation activities are served by a nimble and experienced organization, able to adjust quickly to the needs of the community and external influences.

2020 Fact Sheet

2020 SPRD Fact Sheet


Sisters Park & Recreation District was founded in 1995 as a non-profit organization to provide recreation, sports, and enrichment programs for Sisters area youth and families. Many groups in the community came together to create SOAR (Sisters Organization for Activities & Recreation) including the Sisters School District, Sisters Kiwanis Club, Sisters Rotary Club, Sisters Rodeo Association, AARP, and the Parent Teacher Association.

In 1998 voters approved the formation of the SOAR District, a special park and recreation district, which is partially funded by taxes. The district boundaries are similar to the Sisters School District boundary. SOAR served Sisters and the outlying areas of about 14,000 residents. In 2009 the name of the organization was changed from SOAR to Sisters Park & Recreation District (SPRD).

2018 Local Option Levy

In May 2018, SPRD went out for a $0.15/1,000 local option levy that the voters approved.  The funds are being used to support programs and services identified in the levy informational flyer.
