Village Center Park is a 3.2-acre neighborhood park along Lone Oak Drive between Shamrock and Michael Park Drive in the southeast area. The City Council approved a $752,424 construction contract with Roxy Ann Rock, Inc. on June 21, 2018, and park development begins in July 2018 with an estimated completion date of Fall 2019.
Park features include a playground, picnic shelter, basketball half-court, walking paths, and a restroom. Two dedicated pickleball courts are also planned as a result of a modification to the master plan submitted by the Parks and Recreation Director.
The parkland was donated by Crystal Springs Development Group to the Medford Parks and Recreation Foundation in 2016, and the property was conveyed from the Foundation to the City in May 2018 upon completion of street infrastructure.
The park will serve as a hub for for Southeast Area Greenway path that will eventually connect Larson Creek Greenway to Chrissy Park.
