$700k in Medford park renovations approved

MEDFORD, Ore. —The Medford City Council approved funding for Howard School Park Thursday night.

More than $700,000 will go toward renovations at the park, thanks to state of Oregon lottery funds.

That will be combined with city funds, estimated around $1.4 million for the improvements.

The west Medford park has been around since the 1970s.

New additions will include a splash pad, a new restroom, and re-paved athletic courts.
