Growing up I spent countless hours at Oak Park. I got my first bee sting at Oak Park. Besides a fantastic playground there is a beautiful walking path, a new splash park, wide open spaces and much more. In grade school we went to Swimming award banquets at Oak Park. In High School there were theatre award banquets. Tim and my rehearsal dinner was at Oak Park.
Oak part was flooded in the Minot Flood. It flooded in a big way.
I couldn’t find a good photo of Oak Park since the flood. But you can imagine from that Google Maps link that Oak Park is/was under a lot of water.
