Fifth Anniversary of Parks Reopening
Thanks to the devoted advocacy of FOSP members and friends, Oracle State Park reopened its doors in 2011, after the 2008 state-enforced closure. This milestone in the Parks history serves as a reminder of how important it is to keep sustaining the Park— through our visits, giving, volunteerism and voices. For now the Park is open Saturdays and Sundays, 8 AM-5 PM. Soon well be open again full time! More details to come.
