ROSEBURG, Ore. - City officials and members of the community gathered at Micelli Park to celebrate a brand new playground Tuesday.

The project was funded by a gift from Umpqua Bank in celebration of their 60th year of business.

"We just looked at this as a project that brought the Roseburg community and Umpqua Bank together and to provide a place that's a safe, meaningful place for children and families in the community to come and be able to spend time together," said Neal Brown, executive VP with the bank. "This was just the perfect opportunity to do that."

The improvements include new play equipment, picnic tables and landscaping.
