While most activities continue this year as usual, fee waivers on City of Salem youth programs have been reduced to 20% in response to General Fund revenue shortfalls.

“While these changes are necessary in light of budget challenges, we want to continue to offer some fee relief for qualifying households,” said Jennifer Kellar, Parks and Recreation Division Manager. “Even with these changes, City of Salem activities are still remarkably affordable in comparison to other available options.”

The partial fee waivers are available to people living within the Salem city limits, who can provide proof of Oregon Health Plan, Oregon Trail Card or WIC participation. Call 503-588-6336 to verify eligibility, or get more information, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
