ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The City of Roseburg is looking to expand Sunshine Park with a 40-acre walking trail.

The park is located five miles east of downtown right off Diamond Lake Boulevard.

The park already consists of two baseball fields, three softball fields, two picnic pavilions and a playground.

City officials said they initially developed the 90-acre park in 2001. They said they are working with a trail construction firm called Ptarmigans Ptrails to create concept designs for the park.

“It’s nice they're going to put their attention toward the park and add another trail out here," said Mark Moore, a frequent park visitor. "I know it will get a lot of use."

Because the plans are in its early stages, city officials said they do not know how much the project will cost. However, they said they are looking into funding the park with grants.

City officials will be hosting a public forum at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at the Roseburg Public Library to get feedback about the potential trail system. They said they will also reveal the first renderings of the project.
