City Council Delays, Not Denies Splash Pad Project

There has been some recent confusion regarding the much anticipated playground and splash pad project at Fir Grove Park.  The City Council recently rejected all bids for the equipment installation as a result of higher than expected installation bids.  This is in no way a denial of the project; it is a delay to ensure that the project proceeds in an efficient and affordable way.  We anticipate reevaluating and rebidding the project in fall or winter of this year.

The City of Roseburg is committed to bringing this project to fruition and would like to once again thank everyone that has donated time and money to this effort.  Every donation, large or small counts!  Major donors include:   

  • Oregon Parks & Recreation Department
    Roseburg Morning Rotary
    The Ford Family Foundation
    The Heislein family
    Pacific Power Foundation
    Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation
    The Bruce Family
    Douglas County Forest Products
    First Call Resolution
    Douglas Community Fund

The City looks forward to a grand opening celebration planned for  2018.
