"The Lithia Park Trail Guide is a resource to the path in Lithia Park that is marked with plant identification signs. Lithia Park is rich in its history and in botanical diversity. Beginning at the lower entrance to the park and extending throughout much of the park, you will find numbered signs with identifications and brief descriptions of significant trees and some shrubs. These plants, native and introduced, lend the park a delightful aspect at all times of year. Learning about the trees and shrubs that contribute so much to this environment can help us appreciate Lithia Park as a living heritage. The popular trail guide was digitally converted in Spring, 2016. If you would like a paper version of the guide, please contact the Parks Department at the Grove, 1195 East Main Street, 541-488-5340
