The City of Tualatin’s Parks & Recreation Department has been hard at work to come up with creative ways to bring joy and cheer this winter. Thanks to funding from the Washington County Mental Health & Community Psyche Grant funding, the City of Tualatin is working to respond to the adversity we have faced due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. At a time when we must remain physically distant to keep one another safe, it is equally important for each of us to connect with our communities and share what makes Tualatin so special.
Please join us for one or more of these new community celebrations!
Tualatin Gratitude Wall
Even with all of the challenges that 2020 has brought us, we have so much to be thankful for. Share your thoughts on our community Gratitude Wall!
Purrfect Holiday Cat Photo Contest
Following up on the fun of our HOWLoween dog photo contest, we’re now sharing the smiles with our feline friends! Snap a picture of your cat getting into the holiday spirit, and enter to win a meow-worthy gift basket!
Holiday Lights Parade
Be a part of a new Tualatin tradition by decorating your car for the Tualatin Holiday Lights Parade! Reserve your spot in one of the three parades, and receive a free auto light starter kit. Not quite ready to deck out your car? Visit the webpage a week prior to each parade to see if the route goes past your home! Saturday, Dec. 5 we will be parading from Atfalati Park to Browns Ferry Park, Dec. 12 is the Ibach Park area, and Dec. 19 will be the north side of Tualatin and the Jurgens Park area.
