The Vision of the Oak Harbor Park Board is to engage in a meaningful partnership with the City of Oak Harbor Park Division to develop and secure creative, sustainable additional resources for the future development and effective management of the natural, human and financial resources of the Parks Division.

Mission Statement
The Mission of the Oak Harbor Park Board is to enhance the existing parks system in Oak Harbor by providing community leadership and developing a public culture of stewardship.  We will plan with vision, imagination and energy so that today’s decisions and actions will assure the opportunities of future generations are as great as those enjoyed today.
Goal Items
  • Assist in establishing a Parks Division “wish list” so that organizations and individuals may actively participate in the meaningful procurement of those items.
  • Act as a positive catalyst between the City of Oak Harbor, churches and schools, local, civic and service organizations, concerning the use and enhancement of our City parks.
  • Encourage the safety, maintenance and appearance of our parks and facilities at the highest level of available resources.
 Action Items
  • Assist the Parks Division as they call upon us for specific tasks.
  • Inventory and identify needs within the community parks.
  • Develop relationships with community organizations to encourage them to adopt local parks for specific improvement goals.
  • Encourage community groups to take a more active role in the maintenance of our parks by establishing a scheduled program to further enhance the work being done by the Parks Division staff.
Park Board membership is by Mayoral/Council appointment for a three year period.  Selection is from volunteer members of the community.
