For the last several months there has been an increase in mischief and vandalism in Oakhurst Park. Irrigation heads have been broken, over 30 white bows of gratitude placed on Oakhurst Park trees honoring first responders were taken, and in the past couple of weeks, vandalism, or at least, extremely rough play at the park resulted in damage to one of the toucans. The toucan’s spring was broken and the steel footrest was bent by what appears to be rough usage by multiple large teenagers or adults. Small children could not cause this degree of damage.
FOOP has been working with the Park Department toward a solution and the damaged toucan was removed from the Oakhurst Park this afternoon. Restoration and repair details will be forthcoming as soon as available in the upcoming FOOP Scoop newsletter.
If you observe vandalism occurring in Oakhurst Park – please call 911.
Get your paint brushes out! FOOP picked up paint today from FW Park department to paint the benches and picnic tables FOOP members sanded down during FOOP’s “Spruce Up Oakhurst Park” project last month. 🌳🌷🌳
Watch for updates.
Question: When a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound?
Answer: We don't know ... but when a tree falls in Oakhurst Park, it is heard by the entire neighborhood! 🌳😂🌳😂

Perfect morning in Oakhurst Park as FOOP planted fresh flowers! Even the frogs 🐸 & dogs 🐕 were out and about enjoying our beautiful park! And... A sweet neighbor who recently lost her husband drove by and said "Thank You FOOP!" as she donated $100 to help keep the grass green and the flowers blooming in Oakhurst Park!!!!
