Oak Hill Park is located on the west side of St. Louis Park. Oak Hill is one of the most popular places to be in the summer because of the many activities and facilities to use. The park offers softball diamonds, basketball courts and trails for those who want to be active. In the winter months, you can find a large sliding area and lighted skating rink for public use.
Oak Hill is also a great place to relax and have a picnic with the many tables and shelters located throughout the park. A playground provides great entertainment for both young and old.
Oak Hill Park also features a water playground that lets tots activate bubbling hoses, water nozzles and sprinkler arches. Just wave your hand over the sensor bollard and get ready to splash in the sun! It’s the equivalent of running through the sprinkler on a grand scale. Parents should always accompany and supervise children. Rubber soled water shoes are strongly recommended for all participants. Splash Pad operating hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, May 25 through Sept. 9 (weather dependent).
