santo play structure

The installation of a new play structure at the Santo Community Center was completed just prior to summer activities beginning in May 2012. This new play structure was the result of private foundations and the Medford Kiwanis Club joining forces with the Foundation to create this new recreational space.

The Foundation received another land donation from Mike and Mary Mahar along the Larson Creek Greenway which will serve as a future pedestrian path from the Bear Creek Greenway to the SE Area Plan and beyond.


The Foundation played a large role in the development of this 1.8 acre park within the SE Area Plan. Through the donation of land by Mike and Lou Mahar, the Foundation was able to coordinate the first developer built park in the Medford park system. This partnership saved the City nearly $800,000 in land and development costs.

Through the generous efforts of the Tennis in the Park committee, over $280,000 was raised in order to build four new tennis courts with lights in Fichtner-Mainwaring Park. These courts have helped grow the sport of tennis in west Medford and have provided space for tennis lessons offered to both youth and adults.
