The Fall Recreation and Leisure Guide is available online by visiting cityofsandy.com and clicking on the link in upper-case letters in the middle of the home page.

Limited copies of the paper version of the guide will be available only at the Sandy Community Center, 38348 Pioneer Blvd., or the Sandy Library, 38980 Proctor Blvd.

Anyone who didn’t receive the fall guide can obtain it by calling 503-489-2150 or sending his or her name and email address to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
