MEDFORD, Ore. -- The city of Medford is moving forward on three major parks projects this summer: Village Center Park, Cedar Links Park, and Kennedy Park.

The city gave the green light for Village Center Park on Thursday. Now the city is coordinating more $2 million in renovations and developments with these three parks. 

Village Center Park will go in the Summerfield Park development area, while Cedar Links Park will go in what used to be the Cedar Links Golf Course. Kennedy Park is located along Springbrook Road, next to Kennedy Elementary School. 

The Medford City Council approved a $752,424 contract with Roxy Ann Rock to build Village Center Park. That area will include traditional features like a large lawn with pathways, two small playgrounds, a restroom, a basketball court, two pickleball courts, and park furniture. Construction on Village Center Park will begin in July with an expected completion date of Fall 2018.

Kennedy Park is getting $854,187 in upgrades including additional parking, path and lighting repairs, a large lawn, park furniture, playground, drinking fountain and picnic shelter. This work is also expected to be complete by Fall 2018. 

Cedar Links Park will be made up of the eighth and ninth holes at the former Cedar Links Golf Course. Right now crews are installing irrigation and pathways. The city applied for a grant to complete the second phase of the project. The proposed grant of $491,000 would pay for playgrounds, a restroom, a basketball court, two dedicated pickleball courts, a small dog park, and a community garden. That work would begin in 2019.
