Winnebago County Community Park Roadway/Path Project
The drawing at right is one of the concept designs for the project being designed by Rettler Corporation.After a few more tweaks, ground breaking will occur some time in September 2014, if the weather permits.
During construction the park will remain open and updates on access will be available from K104.3 & 92.9 as well as on our web site, Facebook page, and in the monthly Scene.
When traveling within the park during the construction phase please make sure to be alert to temporary traffic signs and cones. Every effort will be made to allow through traffic to all areas of the park.
The 40 year old roadway will be replaced with a two way design and an all access path will connect the primary function areas of the park.
Here at the Parks Department we’re very excited about the new road and path! We realize that there will be some discomfort while the work is progressing but the end result will be well worth it!
The Community Park was originally built as a development project during the late 1960's and early 1970's.
This park’s abundance of open space and easy access are among its greatest assets. The 270-acre site is located in the far northern section of the City of Oshkosh between County Road Y and Snell Road, and County Road A and Highway 76. Facilities include four shelters and a rentable pavilion with playground equipment and support amenities which can be reserved, ball diamonds, 18 field soccer complex, archery range, rugby football fields, disc golf course, three rentable picnic shelters, and three fishing lakes. Winnebago County Community Park is also one of the few parks within Oshkosh City limits where there is a public dog park. 9 acres of fenced area in the northeast portion of the park provides a secure environment for dog owners to exercise their pets off-leash. Numerous special events and picnics are held in the park each year. See the amenities section to view photos of the park and other assets our park offers!
