“We exist to provide healthy and diverse recreational opportunities through programs, events, parks, and natural areas, for all ages and abilities, ensuring that the City of Tigard is a desirable place to live and play.”   

COMING SOON:  Snowman Scavenger Hunt
Snowman Scavenger Hunt at Summerlake Park

Starting on Monday, December 17, we will hide five snowmen around Summerlake Park.

Be on the lookout!

The first ten families to find all the snowmen have a chance to win a FREE winter gift box. Stay tuned for how to play and the release of the clues.

Looking to keep your child’s mind active during the winter break?
