SPRINGFIELD, Ore -- Lane County Parks is installing a new kiosk at Mt. Pisgah that will no longer take cash.

The county is hoping to cut down on thefts and make it easier and more convenient for park users.

"Mt. Pisgah is our most-visited park and we see an increasing number of visitors as the days get longer and warmer – and our goal is to make it easier and more convenient," said Lane County Parks Supervising Analyst Charles Conrad.

They will try out the kiosk for three months and then decide whether to expand it to other parks.

"The challenge in most of our parks is their rural location," said Conrad. "This technology depends upon the connectivity available to the kiosk," said Conrad.

The change starts Wednesday Feb. 14. but cash will be accepted at Arboretum office through the end of the month. If it's successful, Richardson Park could get a card-only kiosk next year.
