City Names New Facility 'Mayor Bob Severson Memorial Playground'

Release Date: 

The Hermiston City Council unanimously agreed Monday to name the new playground being constructed at Victory Square Park as, “Mayor Bob Severson Memorial Playground.”

The recommendation is in recognition of Mayor Severson’s many years of community leadership and his service as Mayor since 2000.  Mayor Bob, who passed away in December during his final month in office, was known to be a champion of parks and recreation and arts in Hermiston. 

The new playground is scheduled to open April 20, 2013 after a dedication ceremony and neighborhood work party.
