Construction was completed in late 2019 on the Oswego Oaks Neighborhood Park utilizing 3 vacant CRA-owned parcels located at the southwest corner of Oswego Avenue at Seminole Blvd. The park, which is directly across Oswego Avenue from the Westgate Recreation Center, creates open space for community use and events, re-purposes vacant land to prevent illegal dumping and loitering, and initiates the L-2 Canal Greenway project as outlined in the CRA’s Community Redevelopment Plan by creating a feature linear park with links to other public uses.

The park includes an event pavilion and performance area, winding pathways, seating areas, a food truck zone, and improved landscaping to highlight the site’s trademark mature oak trees. Oswego Oaks Park is utilized for community engagement activities to promote pride of place and to disseminate information on CRA programs and projects.

To fund the park the CRA, the CRA leveraged increment revenues with grant funding from federal and local sources. The CRA was awarded $151,175 from the Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority’s Blighted & Distressed Properties Clean-Up Program, and PBC DHED was approved to provide $345,803 in gap funding from the County’s CDBG allocations.
