Gold Hill City Acquires Park

GOLD HILL, Ore. — The Ben Hur Lampan Park off Interstate 5 is now under new ownership. The city of Gold Hill now owns the park; previously, it was state owned.

Gold Hill has restored water services in that area and hopes to develop a tent camping area. The park also provides a picnic area, dog walking areas, and a place to pull over if you are floating on the river.

The city encourages Gold Hill residents to attend a town hall meeting on October 2nd at 6th to provide input on the future of the city’s developing park system and trails.
