<br />The Parks and Recreation Department proposes to continue the opportunity for Lake Oswego
<br />residents to enjoy access to the Willamette River by contracting with Alder Creek to offer public
<br />rental of kayak and SUPs, in addition to related retail sales at George Rogers Park.
<br />Alder Creek has contracted with Parks & Recreation Department to offer water sport classes
<br />since 2011 because Parks & Recreation is unable to provide these programs internally. Over the
<br />past three summer 2016 through 2018 the Parks & Recreation Department has successfully
<br />partnered with Alder Creek to provide exceptional classes, activities, camps and rentals out at
<br />George Rogers Park.
