Preparing for New Bathroom Building in Oakland Park


Oakland's city crew has been busy moving dirt in the park in preparation for the new bathroom building that will be built in the near future. The Friends of Oakland Foundation contributed $20,000 to the construction of the building and there is also $30,000 in the city's budget going towards the building. This will be a great addition to the park, providing a large bathroom/shower facility for the public, and especially for those camping in the park.

Trees and Branches Down in Oakland from Last Night’s Storm


Very strong winds came through Oakland late last evening, taking down branches and trees around town. Between an inch to an inch and a half of rain fell during the storm. Chain saws can be heard around town, cutting up the branches and trees to haul to the dump. It was definitely a strong spring storm.
