Recreation Roundup: by Parks & Recreation Commission Chair John Miles

Jubilee Park is seeing new and improved changes.
We are in the final stretch of spray pad construction. The last of the needed items have been shipped and will be installed soon. Shortly thereafter, the spray pad will be open for use. While the spray pad will be open, work will still be occurring on accessories like benches, tables and shade structures. Please be mindful of the workers and respect any safety barricades An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be happen over the July 4 weekend.
The Parks and Recreation Commission will be selecting and planting grass and appropriate shade trees to take the place of pine trees that needed to be removed. Until then, this area will remain fenced off.
The new playground extension will have three new pieces of equipment and be surrounded by state-of-the-art Rubber Bond surfacing.
The already existing portion of the playground has been resurfaced with a new thick layer of engineered wood chips.
As always, the Parks and Recreation Commission strives to deliver the best possible recreation experience for the residents of Cave Junction With the completion of the spray pad and playground grants nearing completion, we will keep moving forward starting with the development of a comprehensive map for Jubilee Park. The design will be based on feedback from community members and much discussion by the Park Commission. The new design will reflect changes that have occurred in the 60+ years since the park was originally built. The population has grown, recreational needs and desires have changed, and community members have asked for changes to fit their current needs. With an engineered design, the commission can move forward to obtain funding and continue the upgrades to our City Park.
