Hoover Park Playground Rebuilt!

The playground area at Hoover Park has been completely rebuilt with donations from the community, matching funds from the City of Salem and CDBG Block Grant funds.

The new playground has age appropriate equipment including swings, play structures and climbing equipment. A lighted shelter area has also been added to the park for picnics and has electrical facilities to host neighborhood concerts.
