Temporary Pool Closure

Willamalane Park Swim Center will be closed for maintenance from Monday, April 29 to Friday, May 3, with plans to reopen on Monday, May 6. During this time, most programs (including swim lessons and water fitness classes) will be relocated to Splash.

Splash hours for April 29-May 3

  • Monday-Thursday: 6 a.m.-9 p.m. No waterpark swims.
  • Friday: 6 a.m.-6:30 p.m. (with a waterpark swim from 4:30-6:30 p.m.)
  • Weekend hours and programming will remain the same, including swim lessons and  waterpark swims from 1-5 p.m. 

Please check the April 29-May 3 calendar for detailed class schedules and drop-in times.

During the closure, Willamalane will replace a critical motor in the HVAC system, which requires heavy, specialized equipment. This procedure must be done now to prevent prolonged downtime or damage to the HVAC system. Please be mindful of signs and work areas near the building.

Park Updates and Ice Storm Clean-Up 

The January ice storm heavily impacted Willamalane parks. Some Willamalane parks, natural areas, and paths are closed. For an interactive map of district parks, view the park status map. To report park damage, call (541) 736-4544.

Parks are deemed “open” when partial or full access to the park is possible. Developed areas of open parks, like playgrounds, basketball courts, and paved paths, have been cleared unless noted below. However, debris and marked hazard areas may still be present elsewhere. Please use caution and pay attention to posted signs when visiting parks.

Even with the hard work of Willamalane staff, outside contractors, and volunteer crews, it may be several months before all debris is cleared and all parks are back in full operation.

Notes on Open Parks

  • Clearwater Park - The disc golf course is open. The nature trails and equestrian trails remain closed. Please be cautious around any remaining debris in the park.
  • Dorris Ranch - Most main walkways and paved paths have been cleared. The main gravel path through the orchard is open and cleared to Middle Fork Path. The orchards adjacent to the main gravel path and all other nature trails remain closed.
