Welcome to Art Beyond, Ashland’s new and exciting outdoor art adventure. See below for Lithia Park activities. Click on “Back to Art Beyond” to view four additional sites hosting more than two-dozen artists in beautiful locations in and around Ashland.
The defining feature of Ashland’s bustling downtown. Leafy Lithia Park is adjacent to restaurants, cafes and shops. The perfect place to relax, people-watch, read a book, sip coffee or perhaps take a drink from lithium-rich water that flows from the park’s water fountains. You might not immediately realize that this urban oasis encompasses nearly 100 acres of often rugged, hilly terrain bisected by pristine Ashland Creek.
