We are in the process of raising funds for a wonderful playground for our park. The playground on our wish list will cost around $100,000.00. We have been awarded grants for $30,000.00. We need your help to build a playground that will delight children for many years to come.
Phase I of the playground is installed. Come out and PLAY.
The Memorial/Gazebo is being built. When we originally began building the Park we sold bricks for the Memorial. We would like to apologize for the delay in building the Memorial but we wanted to wait and do something special that will highlight the memories of the school, faculty, staff and students and the reason the park is being built.
We are selling additional Bricks for the memorial until September 22, 2014. If you are interested you can click the heading at the top of the page Brick Order Form this will open the order form with the information.

In 2005 we were given the opportunity to build a park for our community. The park is located on the site of the original Oak Grove Elementary and High School that was destroyed on April 8, 1998 by the F-5 tornado that devastated the western area of Jefferson County. The schools were moved to a new larger location and we have the opportunity to develop a facility that is not available in this part of the county. The Board was formed, incorporated and approved by the Jefferson County Commission in August 2005. The Park will include a football field, baseball field, playground, walking track, basketball court, tennis court, pavilions and a recreation center. The Park is a Memorial dedicated to the memory of the school, students, staff and community and will benefit over 12,500 residents in this area.
The Football Field has been reconditioned a Concession Stand with bathrooms and a Press Box has been completed and we have temporary bleachers. This was completed with donations we have received from the Jefferson County Commission and individuals in our community. The football field and concession stand is used primarily by the Oak Grove Youth Football league. The youth football has reached record numbers of players with the availability of these facilities and will continue to increase.
In addition to the football program we also have several baseball/softball teams that have formed and who had an awarding winning first year.
In 2009 the walking track, lighting for the football field and phase I of the playground were completed.
The pavilion was completed in 2013 and the Memorial Gazebo was started in 2014 and will be completed in 2015.
