The scheduled Nov. 3-4 Olsrud Family Community Playground installation has been postponed.
Our Parks, Recreation and Facilities Director Rich Rosenthal sent the following letter
to citizens, volunteers, staff, and project supporters:
Today we were informed by the playground manufacturer that the missing
parts will not arrive in time for the planned Nov. 3-4 volunteer-led
installation. In fact, we learned the parts supplier in Georgia has not yet
completed Medford’s order even though they had previously confirmed an
Oct. 18 shipment date.
This is certainly an aggravating and frustrating development. At any rate,
this weekend’s volunteer build is postponed until we receive physical
confirmation of parts shipment and a transit timeframe.
We are all eager to finish playground assembly, and we hope it can be
done before the holiday season.
