The Medford Parks and Recreation Foundation is looking for assistance in funding the soon to be reconstructed playground structure at Bear Creek Park in Medford, Oregon.  This new playground structure will be renamed the "Olsrud Family Community Playground." All proceeds collected from this campaign will be directly utilized in the reconstruction of this playground.

For more than three decades the custom-built, castle-like playground structure at Bear Creek Park has stood as southern Oregon's most unique and best-loved playground, a hub of adventure play for children a from all over the Rogue Valley.  It was constructed as a result of a broad community partnership and collaboration that promoted unity, inclusion, collaboration and volunteerism.  The existing wooden structure has reached the end of its useful lifecycle and time has come to replace the playground to meet the needs of future generations.

In keeping with the spirit of the original 1980's process, the Medford Parks and Recreation Department reached out to nearby Roosevelt and Hoover Elementary School students who provided their vision and ideas on what a new playground should look like.  A community survey also underscored the need for a more accessible playground with improved access for children of all abilities, rejuvenating the 30-year-old wooden fort-like structure along Siskiyou Boulevard with a similar style

We hope you will consider providing a gift in any amount toward the  vision of rebuilding this Rogue Valley icon.  For more information, please visit medfordparksfoundation.org.
