City of Medford plans parks improvements

MEDFORD, Ore. — The city of Medford is planning some safety improvements for local parks.

The city’s considering multiple upgrades and replacements for two popular parks, Bear Creek and Fichtner-Mainwaring.

Some of the improvements include lighting, pathway repairs and the installation of surveillance or alarm systems to cut down on vandalism.

The city is working to get grant funding, but hopes the project will be completed by next June.
