HistoryNorth Jeffco purchased the property from Thomas D. and Marjorie B. Vanderhoof, August 3, 1962. Funds for Oak Park were made possible in 1967 by the approval of North Jeffco Metropolitan Recreation and Park District. The park is adjacent to 10.7 acres of Campbell School property. In addition to 11.67 acres for the park, the City of Arvada leased the obsolete Campbell Cottage School property to North Jeffco for Oak Park in 1980. North Jeffco converted that area into midget football, baseball and softball fields in 1993. The Park was probably named for the nearby grove of oak trees planted by pioneer David Milne Stott.
