Esther Short Park Brick Program

Provide a legacy for the future and have your name or that of someone you wish to honor engraved in a brick in Esther Short Park. These bricks are located around the bell tower in Propstra Square and are an excellent way to commemorate a loved one or friend. Proceeds from the sale of bricks benefit the Parks Foundation of Clark County and the maintenance of flowers and plants growing in the park. Place an order.

The Everybody Plays! Recreation Scholarship 

Since its inception in 1992, the Vancouver Parks and Recreation scholarship program has made our programs accessible to thousands of kids, teens and people with disabilities who would not otherwise have the means to participate in recreation activities. Teens have climbed on the bus with other teens and gone whitewater rafting for the very first time…people with developmental disabilities have learned to cook and found lifelong friends…boys and girls have learned to play sports and get along with others…in many cases, thanks to the Everybody Plays! Recreation Scholarship Program.

Your contribution has a direct, positive, and life-enhancing impact on a fellow community member.

For more information about our Scholarship Program contact Recreation Program Manager Dave Perlick at 360-487-8314.

Sensory Camp

Sensory Camp provides a safe, structured, and engaging environment strategically designed for children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) which is part of, but not limited to, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This is the only program in Clark County providing this recreational program to children with SPD.
