Where are you located?
We are located upstairs inside First Presbyterian Church on the corner of 8th St. and Monroe Ave. in downtown Corvallis, Oregon.
When are you open?
Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., from October to mid-June. CIP follows the Corvallis School District calendar and will be closed during school holidays and weather closures. See our calendar for more information.
Who can play?
Only members of Corvallis Indoor Park may play. During registration, each member will receive four guest passes (total) per year. Children must be in Kindergarten or younger. Older children are not allowed to play. Any guest child attending Corvallis Indoor Park MUST have a liability waiver signed by the child’s parent or legal guardian on file with the park.
How much does it cost?
Per Year: $80
Paid Yearly (October through Mid-June) for each family.
Per Term: $50
Paid each term (fall: October through mid-February; spring: mid-February through mid-June) for each family.
For Daycares: $100 Paid Yearly – Ask us for details.
What does the cost include?
You can use the park with your children of Kindergarten age or younger on any day the park is open (typically, we follow the Corvallis School District calendar). Two parties each year and other scheduled activities are also included in your membership fee. Part of your payment is taking on four co-op jobs during the year.
What level of commitment do I have?
Co-op members are responsible for four jobs per year (2/term). Jobs might include the following:
- Tidying up and closing the park
- Toy cleanings
- Party prep
- Party set up or clean up
Each job takes a minimum of 30 minutes and a maximum of 60 minutes to complete, except for toy cleanings, which are held on Saturday mornings, which take two hours and count fort two jobs.
What if I can’t show up for my job or take on jobs at the times they must be done?
There are limited opportunities to pay another member to do your jobs. At registration, you can ask the Jobs Manager if anyone is available to take all four of your jobs for the year. If you have an issue with one of your assigned jobs, you can check the list of people willing to do a job for pay. If you simply don’t show up for your scheduled job, your membership may be suspended or terminated.
Do I get a reminder for my job date?
If you have a valid email address on file with us, you should receive an email a few days before your job. However, we ask that you take responsibility for doing your job on the date you signed up for. Please make sure you put the dates on your personal calendar! You can also check the bulletin board at the Park to see who is assigned closing dates for the current month.
Registering for Membership
When is registration?
Check out the park before joining for the 2022-23 season on Park Preview Day, Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
New AND returning member registration days will be held Thursday, Sept. 28, and Friday, Sept. 30, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. Your total time at registration may be up to one hour for orientation, job sign-up and payment.
Do I have to attend registration?
Yes! You can not use the park until registration, orientation, job sign up, and payment have been completed. While we cannot hold a spot for new members, we do try to work with people if they are unable to attend and the park still has openings.
What if I was a member more than a year ago, but skipped one or more years?
Register during the regular registration period and take part in the orientation to make sure you know all the updated information on how CIP operates.
What if I can’t make it to registration?
Just shoot us an email (email@example.com) and we’ll work with you to find a better alternative.
Playing at the Park
What is your COVID-19 policy?
Mask are optional but encouraged for everyone 3 and older at the Corvallis Indoor Park. Whenever possible, please maintain social distancing. We will have sign-in sheets that include a brief COVID-19 survey and contact tracing information. Due to COVID-19 restrictions in our host church, we ask that you restrict elevator use to only those with strollers or mobility devices and only one family should ride at a time.
What is your sickness policy?
We ask that your child be free of fever (without medication) and without any vomiting or diarrhea for at least 24 hours in order to play at the Park. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have tested positive, please follow Oregon Health Department guidelines for quarantine.
How do you clean toys?
We hold regular toy cleanings to sterilize all our toys, but we ask that you place toys that have been “tasted” in the appropriate bin to minimize the spread of germs. We use either a bleach or a white vinegar solution during our regular toy cleanings. For this reason, children are not allowed to attend with you when you do your toy cleaning job. For everyday use, we also have disinfectant wipes available that you can use to clean toys and surfaces.
What if I spot a broken or damaged toy?
We have a bin where you can place broken toys. If you see a larger toy that is broken, please remove the toy from access by children and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to report it.
What if I have older children with me?
Children older than Kindergarten age are not allowed to play at Corvallis Indoor Park. Please try not to bring older children, as it can be difficult to keep them from participating in play. We do this so that the younger children don’t get injured and to minimize wear and tear on our toys, which are designed for play by younger kids.
What should I do with my stroller when I come to the Park?
Please leave strollers against the wall outside of the Indoor Park. Strollers inside the Park are a hazard for playing children.
