Oak Park Heights seeks stories, photos for Party in the Park

The city of Oak Park Heights will have its annual Party in the Park on Thursday, June 8 this year, in Autumn Hills Park. For the past few years, the event has been in August in Brekke Park.

The city wants to have a special celebration, because this year marks the 160th anniversary of when Oak Park — the name of the original town — was platted in 1857. Residents will be encouraged to share historic photos and stories related to the city.

Anyone who has photos, stories, memorabilia or other items to share can contact Jennifer Pinski at 651-439-4439.
