Butler-Perozzi Fountain in Lithia Park
Fundraising efforts continue for Butler-Perozzi Fountain restorations. This 100-year-old structure near the front of Lithia Park is leaking and structurally compromised.  Both the Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission and the Ashland Parks Foundation hope to ensure its survival for at least another 100 years.  To contribute to this worthwhile project, contact the Ashland Parks Foundation at www.AshlandParksFoundation.org or 541.488.5340.
