The goal of the Parks and Recreation Department is to provide the residents of Wilsonville with a wide range of programs, services, and recreational opportunities that promote health, wellness, and enjoyment.
If your goal is life long learning, there are a wide variety of classes available for older adults. You can discover how to edit your digital photos, brush up on your ballroom dancing, or trace the genealogy of your family. Many of the classes are offered at a $10 discount to those age 55 and over and are available for registering online.
In addition to classes, many recurring drop-in activities and group functions are available. Join the Wilsonville Walkers on Tuesdays or Thursdays, sing along with the I-5 Connection music group, play bridge/pinochle, go on a trip, socialize with friends over lunch, or check your e-mail from one of our computers.
Program Highlight: I-5 Connection
The chorus is a diverse group of 40 individuals who enjoy singing together. Chorus members are encouraged to blend their voices in four part harmony and to develop skills through practice and performance. The group has enjoyed continued growth under the direction of musical director, Jocelyn Higgins and accompanist, Katie Turner.
The chorus features two main performances each year, offering seasonal fare at a Yuletide celebration and a variety of popular songs in the spring. In addition, the group makes regular visits to retirement facilities and performs at community events.
How to Join:
From September through June, members meet each Thursday from 10am to noon at the Wilsonville Community Center. Interested individuals may contact the chorus at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Wilsonville Community Center at 503-682-3727 for more information. Membership dues of $10 per month are requested after an initial trial period.
Finally, Community Services offers Social Services (Adults 60+) assistance, a congregate meal and home delivered meal program, and a variety of clinics, many of which are free or nominally priced.
