Jake's Place Park
Published Date: August 01, 2015
As a young teenager, Jake Mazur loved sports and bass fishing. In 1994, Jake and his father, a former City Council member, were fishing on Lake Fork when a storm unexpectedly arose. Before returning to shore, Jake was struck and killed by lightning. Following this unfortunate accident, Mayor Harold Bowden and the City Council obtained 8.5 acres and named the park "Jake's Place" to honor and remember Jake.
Jake's Place contains two baseball fields, a basketball court, picnic benches and grills, the Duane Olson Pavilion, and playground equipment. During the spring and fall baseball seasons, the baseball fields may be reserved for organized practices by returning a completed Reservation Form and Liability Release Forms. The Duane Olson Pavilion may also be reserved by Oak Point residents.
