Ashland Parks and Recreation is excited to launch a new Story Map that highlights the historic sites and features of Lithia Park. The map is available on the Ashland Parks and Recreation home page at www.AshlandParksandRec.org
, or directly at gis.ashland.or.us/LithiaHistoric
“It’s important to not only preserve the history of Lithia Park, but to share it with the community and tourists,” said Ashland Parks & Recreation Director, Michael A. Black.
Map highlights include:
- Meyer Memorial Lake, currently known as the Lower Duck Pond
- The Ashland Community Center, referred to in the early 1900s as the Women’s Civic Improvement Clubhouse
- The iconic Butler-Perozzi Fountain, donated by Gwin S. Butler and Domingo Perozzi from the 1916 World Art Expo
The map includes many other historic landmarks of Lithia Park.
The Story Map was created by Lea Richards, GIS Analyst for the City of Ashland.
