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 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, and a landscape design. Our intent is to build this in 2017.
Phase 2. 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. The trail and dock rebuild are scheduled for 2018.
Phase 3. Restroom Upgrade
Both restrooms will be remodeled with assisted opening doors for ease of access. Toilets, sinks and counters will be replaced using current ADA standards.
