We are so excited to announce that the City has entered into an agreement to purchase 40 acres east of 172nd Avenue for a future Community Center and Community Park! Through surveys, focus groups, informal feedback, and a resident-led Steering Committee, the City has consistently heard that this is one of the top priorities for Happy Valley residents when it comes to recreational must-haves. With this feedback, we’ve learned amenities most desired in a Community Center include the following:

  • Indoor Recreational Swimming Pool
  • Double Court Gymnasium
  • Indoor Walking & Jogging Track
  • Large Community Room & Kitchen
  • Reservable Gathering Space
  • Weight & Cardio Spaces
  • Group Exercise Room

Over the course of the next few months, the City will be completing due diligence on the property prior to closing, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and future issues of HV News for more developments. You can also check out the Community Center Feasibility Study | City of Happy Valley (happyvalleyor.gov) webpage for additional information.
