Work is underway at Oakview Park!
The City of Gainesville’s Wild Spaces & Public Places program, in conjunction with the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department, is pleased to announce that work has begun at Oakview Park (formerly named Kiwanis Girl Scout Park), located at 810 NW 8th Ave.
Improvements include updating the nearly 64-year-old building, a new modern playground, new plants, removing invasive species and adding parking.  Completion of the project is estimated for July 2020. The approximate cost of the project is $998,000.

To allow for improvements, the existing playground at Oakview Park will be unavailable to the public during construction.  Park patrons are encouraged to utilize other parks while this work is taking place. For information on other nearby parks, please click here .
This project is being funded with the Wild Spaces & Public Places half-cent sales tax. The sales tax will continue to create, improve and maintain parks and recreational facilities and acquire and improve environmentally-sensitive lands.
