A $10,000 sponsorship from People’s Bank has resulted in funding for the Olsrud Family Community Playground project to surpass the $500,000 plateau.
The People’s Bank donation sponsors the “Parent and Me” feature, a swing specially designed for an adult to swing simultaneously with a young child.
The donation is the largest contribution received to date from a bank in the City of Medford’s and the Medford Parks and Recreation Foundation’s efforts to raise $610,000 to replace the 30-year-old wooden Bear Creek Park playground with a modern custom-built structure.
“We are very pleased to have contributed to this great cause,” said Ken Trautman, President and CEO of People’s Bank. “I imagine that nearly every family in the Valley has played at the park’s playground at some time and our being the sponsor taking the fundraising past this significant milestone is a great honor.”
Rejuvenating the popular fort-like playground with a similar style using modern material was identified as a high-priority capital improvement project for the 2017-19 funding cycle. The City teamed up with JWA Public Affairs, the Medford Parks and Recreation Foundation, the Medford School District, and Leathers Inc. to replicate the original 1987-88 community design-and-build process and to galvanize fundraising and community engagement.
In addition to being larger in size, the Olsrud Family Community Playground will meet or exceed Federal accessibility guidelines, will have better sightlines for supervision, and will have more climbing features and imaginative amenities for children of all ages.
An additional $100,000 is needed to complete installation of the optimal rubber-tile surface.
“We enthusiastically thank People’s Bank for this major gift,” Medford Parks and Recreation Director Rich Rosenthal said. “The bank is sponsoring one of the several features that will make the Olsrud playground unlike any other in the region.”
