Scholarships

We believe that everyone should have access to recreational activities, including those at the Aquatic Center, the Astoria Recreation Center, Port of Play, and Lil’ Sprouts Academy. If you need financial assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us or pick up an application at any of our facilities. You can also print out an application here or fill one out and submit it online below.

 

Help-a-Kid

Every kid should benefit from public recreation. Unfortunately, sometimes families cannot financially support extra-curricular activities. Can you help to provide a recreational experience that can benefit a child for life?

Your sponsorship dollars will directly allow a child to participate in any recreational opportunity that we offer. When you open your arms the benefits are endless! Call 503.325.7275 to Help-a-Kid.

Employee
of the
Month

 

Sherry came to Astoria from Las Vegas, NV, seeking a small, community-oriented town to call home. It was apparent Sherry was a fit from the start, and she’ll tell you, “I was not sure what I wanted until I walked in the door. Everyone is friendly, and my co-workers are a true blessing to me. I take pride in doing my job to the best of my abilities and being a productive member of my new home town.” Sherry has not only impacted our Parks and Recreation Department professionally, but personally as well - she’s a pertinent member of our staff family and a genuine benefit to our community. Stop into the Recreation Center and say hi!

 

Park Partner 
of the 
Month

Ed Wegner first found Ocean View Cemetery through a SOLVE cemetery clean-up event he volunteered for in 2017.  Inspired, he returned in 2018 for a pre-Memorial Day clean-up co-sponsored by the Parks Department and SOLVE.  Despite being a resident of Aloha, Ed wanted to help assist the City of Astoria in caring for the grounds of the cemetery and become a regular volunteer, coming once or twice a month to remove invasive weeds, pick up trash, and generally neaten the site up.  Ed’s efforts have been greatly appreciated by the Parks Department and he was recently awarded SOLVE’s Volunteer of the Year award for 2018, standing out in a field of over 30,000!
