Department Mission: Corvallis Parks and Recreation preserves and creates a community heritage by providing places and programs designed to enhance the quality of life.


Parks and Recreation Office Hours to Change September 2, 2014

The Corvallis Parks and Recreation office in Avery Park will be closed from 8 am to 12 noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the winter months. The new office hours beginning September 2 through February 28 will be:
Monday - 8 am - 5 pm
Tuesday - 12 noon - 5 pm
Wednesday - 8 am – 5 pm
Thursday - 12 noon – 5 pm
Friday - 8 am – 5 pm

Reduced staff and resources have made this change necessary. By focusing our resources on our busiest months, we will be better able to serve our customers.

Customers can use our online registration system or visit either the Chintimini Senior and Community Center or the Osborn Aquatic Center or contact them by phone: 541-766-6959 for the Senior Center, and 541-766-7946 for the Aquatic Center.

Phone messages left at the Administration Office number – 541-766-6918 – will be returned during open hours.

We appreciate your understanding as we continue to explore ways to use resources wisely and still provide excellent customer service.
