Restroom at Forest Glen Park
The restroom at Forest Glen Park was the last restroom installed in a Central Point Park. Now all of the parks over 1 acre in Central Point have a restroom. Completed December 2010.
Benches and Trash Cans
The Foundation helped fund and purchase the trash cans and benches that are placed throughout downtown Central Point.
The Oregon Fallen War Hero

Van Horn Park received a new playground and fall material, and most importantly now meets ADA guidelines. The old playground was outdated and had very few play items - the new playground has many activities and also has 3 new benches. Completed May 2015.

Bohnert Farm Park (Working Park Name)
A new park will begin construction in the Twin Creeks Development in the next few months. Twin Creeks Development Company will begin the first phase this summer which will include landscaping, irrigation system and trails. This 1.94 acre park will be named in honor of long-time Central Point residents and farmers, Don and Flo Bohnert and will be a first-in-Oregon intergenerational park. An intergenerational or “grandparents” park is one that is designed to provide recreational opportunities for residents of all ages. The Central Point Parks and Recreation Foundation is accepting donations for benches, trees, and for general park support. Plaques for tree and bench donations are also available.
Robert Pfaff Park Playground Replacement Project
The City of Central Point Parks and Recreation Department will be replacing the twenty-year old
playground at Robert Pfaff Park. The exciting thing is that the new playground will be an “inclusive” play structure. The objective of an inclusive playground is to include everyone. The structure is thoughtfully designed to provide a safe place where children of all abilities can play together, and is developmentally appropriate for children with and without disabilities. An inclusive playground takes away the barriers to exclusion, both physical and social, providing a “sensory rich” experience for all.
Playcraft Direct, a local firm, has developed the plans for the playground and our goal is to begin replacement in the fall of 2017. Funds for the project will be provided by the City of Central Point and through donations and grants. The Central Point Parks and Recreation Foundation championed this project and is seeking donations to help fund it.
