Even though most local classes, events, performances and playgrounds remain closed or on hold during the COVID-19 crisis, Corvallis Parks & Recreation is keeping the spirit of art, culture and community alive. Check out this video by Parks & Rec to learn more:



Parks & Rec’s new Stay Well Corvallis website is featuring a different theme each week, along with Backyard Activity Guides from Avery Park and home fitness links from the Corvallis Community Center. People can also read about summer volunteer opportunities, such as becoming a Neighborhood Tree Steward or a Majestic Theatre Volunteer, to build hope and anticipation for the end of quarantine. Osborn Aquatic Center is posting puzzles, art projects, songs, pool tech talks (have you ever wondered how much water is in a swimming pool?), thankfulness posts, and home workouts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Majestic Theater, which is operated by Parks & Rec, is hosting “Majestic Quarantainment” activities, from live world-class performances to reviews of past Majestic shows to weekly together-at-home performances of public-domain or locally-written shows. These “Majesticpiece Theatre” shows are cast, rehearsed, produced and performed from participants’ homes and streamed live every Saturday evening from their Facebook page. Community members are encouraged to audition.

Staying at home does not have to mean being inactive or feeling disconnected. Stay engaged with Corvallis Parks and Recreation. There’s lots to do!
