Splash pad still not working in park

Summer is almost half over and one of the main features of a new park next to the Lithia headquarters is missing.

A splash pad feature hasn't been squirting water for children to play in since the park was completed, raising concern among members of the Medford Urban Renewal Agency board on Thursday.

"Summer is fleeting, and that is the primary feature of that park block," Board Chairman Dick Gordon said.

Gordon and other board members leaned on Lithia Motors, the general contractor for The Commons parks, to get the splash pad working and a drinking fountain installed.
