LITHIA PARK – Walking / Hiking Trails

In the center of downtown Ashland is Lithia Park, Ashland’s crown jewel. Lithia Park is a 93-acre vista of emerald lawns, tennis courts, a sand-pit volleyball court, picnic area, colorful landscaping and playground equipment. The park follows Ashland Creek through undeveloped woodlands, and also includes a Japanese garden, two duck ponds, a formal rose garden, groves of sycamore trees and a number of secluded spots.

A great place to hang out with the family for the afternoon, jog, walk your dog or just meet with friends and feed the ducks.
