The playground and pavilion at Stewart Park will be closed Monday and Tuesday while contractors inspect the roof of the pavilion, which is about to be replaced.

The closure of the park and pavilion is a safety measure during the inspecting process.

Contractors will be performing inspections of the pavilion roof structure. This is to ensure that the roof removal process goes smoothly and that the pavilion roof upgrade can be installed successfully, city officials said. Signs will be posted prior to the start of the inspection, and the area will be closed to the public while the work is being done.

The pavilion is scheduled to get a new roof and have the barbecue pits removed over the next few weeks. The public can check the city’s website,, and social media channels, Facebook and Nextdoor, for updates on this project.

For more information, please contact the city public works department at, or call 541-492-6730.

Stewart Park was established in the 1930's. If the pavilion roof is 80 to 90 years old I'd say Roseburg received good service from it. I'll be curious to see what the pavilion will look like when the project is complete. Betcha it won't look quite the fortress it's looked like up till now. But as with the jet on the huge pedestal, the original steel playground equipment, and the train that has over the years lost all the bells and whistles my generation enjoyed, time moves on. Stewart Park has been and will always be Roseburg's shiniest jewel.
