Our Work — Our Mission

Below are two of the projects the Friends of Oconomowoc Parks and Trails are currently supporting. We are a new non-profit organization that partners with the City of Oconomowoc and surrounding municipalities to conserve, protect, improve, and
enhance area parks and trails to benefit the general public. Our goal is to support opportunities to educate the public about our local resources and serve as a charitable conduit to provide financial support and help to carry out the work of
local organizations.

John and Lavinia Rockwell Park

The community has met the goal to purchase 517 N. Lake Road thanks to over 950 generous donors! The new park will be named the John and Lavinia Rockwell Park. Fundraising will continue for the purpose of developing the park. A not-for-profit organization, Friends of the Oconomowoc Parks and Trails, Inc. has been created to support this project and other park and trail projects. If you would like to donate to the development of the future park please send donations specifying the Rockwell Park in the check memo line to:

Oconomowoc skatepark

The Oconomowoc skatepark will be a one-of-a-kind experience for skaters, scooters, bicyclists, and wheels of all kinds. This will be a 10,000 square foot area that includes lighting, a pavilion, seating area, in addition to the skate park. It will be located in the "old" shelter area of Roosevelt Park. The group is looking to raise $250,000 for this dream park to become a reality.
