Est. 2012 – park was dedicated in spring 2013

Formally Oakdale Elementary School, Grand Rapids Public Schools sold the 3.7 acre property in 2010. River City Scholars currently occupies the school building. As part of the school sale to National Heritage Academies, 1 acre of park land was developed and donated to the City of Grand Rapids for a public park.  The school and community share use of the park and community garden.

The park concept below was generated as part of a neighborhood planning initiative, Schoolyards to Neighborhood Parks, to preserve public park land being sold by Grand Rapids Public Schools.
