Oakland Heights Playground is a neighborhood park located off of Route-20, which is surrounded on three sides (north, south and west) by residences, and is adjacent to land owned by a church to the east. The Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary is located to the east and north of the church property.
The playground was acquired by the City in 1958 through the tax title process. A small community building was later built, which was used for numerous gatherings organized by the Oakland Heights Neighborhood Association. The building remained in place for many years until it was demolished and removed.
