"Hidden Oakwood Walk" Parks Tour

Tucked into the heart of Oakwood is found a trio of natural parks that invite calm reflection and an appreciation of nature. Wright Memorial Public Library and The Oakwood Historical Society are teaming up to host a fun and informative walking tour through Loy Garden, Elizabeth Gardens, and Friendship Park at Houk Stream. Discover the history, natural habitats and geology along Oakwood’s remarkable nature trails.

The tour is scheduled for Saturday, July 30th at 10:00 AM and will be conducted by Mark W. Risley of the historical society. This 1.5 mile walk will begin and end in front of Wright Library. Bottled water will be provided. Registration and walking shoes are recommended.
