Oselka Park: Phase 2
Oselka Park Master Plan
The Oselka Park Master Plan pursues the goals and objectives defined in the City's Parks and Recreation Master Plan 2005-2010 (PRMP).
The PRMP public survey identifies several recreational needs in the community. The Oselka Park Master Plan was designed to meet those needs. The most needed outdoor athletic facilities identified in the survey are: 1) trails, 2) winter sports, 3) baseball/ softball, and 4) basketball. Phase 1 covered point 3) baseball/softball field improvements. Phase 2 includes 1) 8' wide walking trails, 2) an ice rink and sledding hill, and 4) basketball.
Beyond the addition and improvement of ball fields, Oselka Park: Phase 1 park improvements included a new concession/ restroom/ pavilion building and the extension of Detroit Street for additional parking. Phase 1 was paid for by support of the City taxpayers with a special parks millage, a grant from The Pokagon Fund, and a donation from Horizon Bank was used to add the fireplace at the new pavilion. The Ground Breaking for Phase 1 was April 23, 2008, and the Dedication Ceremony was on August 29, 2009.
When complete, Oselka Park will have a band shell, sledding hill, seasonal ice rink (starting 12/2012), walking trails, additional parking areas, improved storm water management, street improvements along the park, and other site amenities. Phase 2 park improvements are made possible by a grant from The Pokagon Fund. Please see this labeled plan.
