Safety remains our top priority at Sisters Park & Recreation District!

Sisters Park & Recreation District has been working hard behind the scenes to reopen with safety as our top concern. We’re implementing new sanitation and social distancing measures throughout our facility and in our programs so we can welcome you back to a safe, fun environment.

Things might look and feel a little different but rest assured that we are still your community partner and can’t wait to see you again. We are modifying our facility and programs to ensure that we’re keeping you as safe as possible. We’ll be updating this page often to keep you informed about everything we’re doing to provide the safest parks and recreation possible.
