Community members organize "Taking back the park"

Members of the community have come together for a “Taking back the park” event.

Pamela Kurtley, Lenna Pavelich, and two others have created an online Facebook page to bring awareness to the event that will be held Thursday, Sept. 19 at 5 p.m. at the Oakhurst Community Park.

According to organizers the event will be a way to give the kids a night to enjoy the park and to revitalize the park and restore it to its original family friendly atmosphere.

Within hours of being posted the page received nearly 100 people who plan to attend the event.

Community members and those planning to attend are encouraged to bring food, refreshments and barbecues.
