Ashland, Oregon is a fine town and home to The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, one of the finest regional theater companies in the nation. It is a place where you can walk into a restaurant and overhear high school students discussing Shakespeare. It is also home to Lithia Park, a large city park designed by John McClaren who designed the Golden Gate Park in San Fransisco. Like the Golden Gate Park, Lithia Park is full of trees, ponds and wildlife.
