I love that the founding fathers and mothers in Ashland were forward thinking enough to invest in the future by setting aside land and hiring a world-class designer to create this gem. It is right next to the town and contributes wonderfully to a relaxed, friendly vibe.

Lithia Park is right in town and has great walking paths. Only part of it is paved, if you need a paved walkway, but for an early morning walk, it is shaded and cool.

You have to stop and taste the lithia water. Everyone has to. Note: While it stinks and tastes awful, if you let it sit in a cup of bottle for even 10 min. the smell and taste gets much better.

Even if you aren't interested in botany, this park is amazingly beautiful. The plants and trees are majestic and the paths are easy to stroll on. I only wish I had more time to sit and enjoy the beauty. This gem should not be missed.

We're so lucky to have such a beautiful and varied park right downtown. 100 acres of woods, creek, grassy fields, playground, duck ponds, hiking trails, tennis, swimming reservoir, japanese garden, bandshell… One of the best things about ashland.

This very beautiful and well-kept park does not welcome dogs. In fact, you can't bring your pet or ride your bike. Current (August 2014) signs warn of black bear sightings in the park. Ashland is a sterile village, and they mean to keep it so. Glad we didn't bring the dogs!

An outstanding park. Designed by the designer of Golden Gate Park in SF. A beautiful stream and a trail that follows it. Lots of photo ops

We spent park of the day exploring te park - trails along the river, around the play ground, over the river - you name it, we went there. A very pleasant way to get away from the crods of the Festival and find a cool spot in the heat of the day.

Historic and easily accessible, a stroll through Lithia Park is a must when visiting Ashland. Scout for the Pygmy owl nest in a snag on the edge of the playground and don't miss the Wood Ducks. On any given day you're likely to encounter musicians and actors performing on the green or demonstrating their fencing or jousting skills.

A great place to relax and take a good walk. Each morning we walked the paved trail, which turned to wood clippings, some stairs, then a narrow trail, up to the swimming hole behind the water tower. We walked the road to the west to return to Ashland. The walk took approximately an hour. We saw deer, heard the creek... More
