PGE Parks and COVID-19
The safety of park visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners is critical to us. We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and our recreation partners as we operate our park and recreation facilities.
Masks, face shields or other face coverings are currently required statewide in Oregon for indoor public spaces—this includes park stores, visitor centers and multi-stall restrooms. Effective July 15, face coverings are also required in Oregon’s outdoor public spaces when physical distancing is not possible.
To help protect visitors’ health and safety, we are operating showers on a limited basis and reservable large-group areas with restrictions. We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting facilities, posted signage to promoting safety measures and requirements, and cancelled all events and in-person educational programs.
The company is working with concessionaires at PGE Parks to help them follow CDC and OHA safety guidelines.

Building a better Oregon
Our parks, adjacent to our hydroelectric plants, are an important piece of our environmental stewardship efforts. The peaceful recreation you can enjoy at these wonderful locations goes hand in hand with our efforts to protect fish and other precious resources.
Recreating safely near dams
Along with generating clean energy, our dams provide excellent places for fishing, boating, camping and more. However, recreation near dams, reservoirs and powerhouses presents potential risks. It is important to understand the hazards and safety measures for recreating near hydroelectric projects.
