Parks Near Lithia Commons Get Names

Founder's SquareMEDFORD, Ore. — A name was chosen for the two parks near the Lithia Commons at the Medford City Council meeting on Thursday.

Both parks will be called “Pear Blossom Park” and the southern portion of the project will be called “Founder’s Square.”

Demolition making room for the park at the northern end of the block has begun and officials hope to have the park completed later this winter.

The water component of the first park is still in the process of being completed and officials say the second park will include more green space than the first.
