Our current project is Singleton Park, which is 8 miles West of Roseburg, Oregon. Singleton Park is the oldest County Park in Oregon, and is managed by the Douglas County Parks Department. Our multi-year plan has three components:
- The development of the viewpoint that overlooks the confluence of the North and South Umpqua Rivers,
- Building a six foot wide paved trail to an existing river dock that will provide wheelchair accessible fishing access, and
- Upgrading the restroom facilities for better wheelchair access.

Phase 1. The Bathrooms and Pavilion Access
Both restrooms will be remodeled with assisted opening doors for ease of access. Toilets, sinks and counters will be replaced using current ADA standards. Estimates are $23,000.00 for the restroom upgrades, $2,500.00 for sidewalk improvements, and $5,000.00 to replace the ramp leading to the pavilion. Our goal is to complete this phase in 2021.
Phase 2. The Viewpoint
The viewpoint is at the west end of the park, and offers a magnificent view of the North, South and Main Umpqua Rivers. A paved trail leads to the viewpoint, which will include resting benches, picnic tables and barbecues, all wheelchair accessible. We have engineered plans for this phase. Our estimate is $80,000.00 for this phase, with completion in 2022.
Phase 3. Trail and Fishing Dock
A six foot wide paved trail will replace an old existing trail, and leads to a thirty by thirty foot concrete dock. The tree will be removed, and the dock will be entirely resurfaced. The trail and the dock will have handrails to provide safety and assistance. The dock will have benches for sitting and enjoying the river, as well as wheelchair accessible fishing for bass, shad, steelhead and possibly salmon. We have engineered plans for this work. Our estimate for this phase is $140,000.00, with completion in either 2022 or 2023, depending on funding.
