In the hub of downtown sits Lithia Park, Ashland's crown jewel. Lithia is a 100-acre vista of emerald lawns, tennis courts (pickleball), a sand-pit volleyball court, picnic areas, colorful landscaping and playground equipment. Lithia Park is open from dawn until 11 p.m.
John Enders' book entitled, Lithia Park: The Heart & Soul of Ashland, is now available for purchase. What a great holiday gift for family and friends! The release of the book coincides with the 100-year Anniversary of the park in 2016 - (Cover photo courtesy Jeffrey McFarland) Learn more!
The park follows Ashland Creek through undeveloped woodlands, and also includes a Japanese garden, two duck ponds, a formal rose garden, groves of sycamore trees and a number of secluded spots. Discover the plants and trees of Lithia Park with our Lithia Park Trail Guide.
