Oakland Park Information
The City of Oakland Park, located in the geographic center of South Florida, was incorporated as the City of Floranada in 1925. Four years later, it became known as the City of Oakland Park. This is a just a little bit of Oakland Park Information.
Since those early years, the City — named for the massive oaks that lined the Middle River — has become a prosperous community that still possesses the cherished values from long ago, but has combined them with a vigorous new City spirit (“Hometown Choice”) to make a safe, friendly haven for families and businesses alike.
Oakland Park was the first municipality in Florida to organize a public safety department and the first City in the State to initiate a recycling program.
Today, Oakland Park is home to a diverse mix of approximately 43,000 residents and covering more than eight (8) square miles. Many have made Oakland Park their “hometown choice” and enjoy a wide array of special events, nature, parks and recreational activities without having to leave their community.
Our Vision: Oakland Park – A hometown choice for excellence in people, public service, and community.
Our Mission: We strive every day to deliver in a friendly, courteous, reliable, and responsive manner with a diverse set of efficient and effective City services that exceed the expectations of our residents, businesses, and employees.
