Oregon Trail Recreation District

Welcome to the Oregon Trail Recreation District!

To Our Community Friends

The recreation center is open and ready for our Youth programs to begin!

As you are probably aware, the Oregon Trail Recreation District has finished building a recreation center in Burley. We are excited for this great addition to the area and the incredible benefits it will bring, particularly for the youth! The enthusiasm we’ve felt from the community has been tremendous, as many have already donated their time and resources to help bring this project to fruition.

The need for a community recreation center has become very evident as youth programs have been introduced and enhanced in the area. The center was constructed on land donated by the City of Burley adjacent to the swimming pool, tennis courts, a city park, the walking track at the former Burley High School football field, and recreation fields.

The Oregon Trail Recreation District

The Oregon Trail Recreation District was formed to enhance recreational opportunities in the Burley area. Natural beauty and willing volunteers have made Burley a wonderful place to strengthen existing programs and develop new recreational opportunities for the community.

Many goals of the District have already been accomplished (enhanced youth programs, facility improvements, and a beautiful river trail, to name a few). We welcome new ideas and input from anyone who is interested in making Burley a great place to live and visit.

You Can Make a Difference in Our Community!

  • Volunteer your time, energy and expertise.
  • Contribute materials, services or money to a project or scholarship fund.
  • Recreation District members may apply for grant money to provide programs and facilities (contact a Board Member for details).

"It Takes an Entire Village to Raise a Child..."

The Oregon Trail Recreation District would like to thank the following people in "our Village" that have donated so much time and dedication to help raise our kids and grandkids.
