RIVERPARK’s COMMUNITY FAIR AT JURGENS PARK

Join the fun at our 3rd Annual Fair on June 1st at Jurgens Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is a family friendly event for residents of the Riverpark Community Involvement Organization (CIO).

 

The City recognizes and partners with six residential CIOs and one commercial CIO. This event is funded by a “Neighborhood, Cultural, Social and Recreational” grant from the city which makes it free for all members, including everyone who lives in the Riverpark area. At the Fair we will vote for Board members and we will welcome new volunteers.

 

This year we are providing a light lunch of BBQ hotdogs and snacks, while they last. Several nonprofit groups will present their services and offer giveaways such as plants, seeds and books. The history of Tualatin will be on display, as well as art and news from the Riverkeepers. Learn about what you should do to be ready for any emergency from your local CERT and Neighborhood Ready teams. The City booth is popular for information regarding city services and all seem happy to meet the police K-9 units. At Jurgens, your children can check out the beautiful new playground equipment and the CIO provides craft activities. This is an opportunity to meet your neighbors and celebrate Spring and our wonderful community.

Únete a la diversión en nuestra 3ra feria anual el 1 de Junio en Jurgens Park de 11am a 1pm. Es un evento para toda la familia para los residentes de la Organización de Inclusión Comunitaria de Riverpark.

 

La ciudad se organiza con 6 CIOs residenciales y 1 comercial. Este evento es patrocinado por la subvención financiera “Comunidad, Cultural, Social y Recreacional”, lo que lo hace gratis para todos los vecinos del área de Riverpark. En la feria podrás votar por los miembros de la Junta y aceptamos nuevos voluntarios.

 

Este año tendremos una pequeña cantidad de BBQ hotdogs y snacks. Muchas organizaciones sin fines de lucro ofrecerán sus servicios y regalos como plantas, semillas y libros. Mostraremos la historia de Tualatin, así como arte y noticias de los Riverkeepers. Además podrás aprender qué hacer en caso de emergencias con los miembros de CERT y Neighborhood Ready. La ciudad tendrá información sobre sus servicios, y todos estarán felices de conocer a nuestros perros policías. Los niños podrán disfrutar de los nuevos juegos en el parque. Ésta será una gran oportunidad para conocer a tus vecinos y celebrar la primavera y a nuestra maravillosa comunidad.

Riverpark CIO Accomplishments

Riverpark Community Fair

In partnership with the City of Tualatin, our second Community Fair was held on May 20, 2023. We celebrated beautiful Spring weather with over 200 Riverpark neighbors.

Tualatin Road Safety

Residents needed help following complaints of speeding, noise, and concerns for safety on Tualatin Road.  Public Works has responded with building crosswalks, adding an electronic speed meter… and we now have an official Deer Crossing sign. Recently, the CIO has received a request to look into speed enforcement by our police.

Off-Leash Dog Park

Riverpark residents and their best dog friends meet mid-morning at Jurgens Park off-leash area.  The residents lobbied for years for this wonderful area where dogs can roam, play, and just be dogs.  Anecdotally, their human partners have formed lasting friendships throughout the neighborhood while keeping their eyes on their canine companions.  This improvement has been a win-win for dog owners and nonowners since it provides an off-leash option.

National Night Out

The Riverpark CIO has contributed funding to neighborhood gatherings to mark National Night Out.  This event is celebrated on the first Tuesday in August and promotes police-community partnerships.  Our Police Chief Steele and his officers make rounds to greet folks at each of the events.
