Playground named after Hermiston's late mayor

TRI-CITY HERALDApril 9, 2013 

HERMISTON -- The Hermiston City Council unanimously agreed this week to name the new playground being built at Victory Square Park the Mayor Bob Severson Memorial Playground.

The recommendation is in recognition of Severson's many years of community leadership and his service as Mayor since 2000, according to a release from the city. Severson, who died in December during his final month in office, was known to be a champion of parks and recreation and arts in Hermiston.

The new playground is set to open April 20 after a dedication ceremony and neighborhood work party.
