Park / Area History

In 1966 the topic of a swimming pool was on the agenda of the Ogema Chamber of Commerce for discussion. The Chamber was informed that in order to have a Regional Park all lands must be owned by the Regional Park Authority. The most appropriate place for such a park was deemed to be over at the Ogema Agricultural Society's grounds. On July 26, 1967 title of the property was transferred from the Ogema Agricultural Society to the proposed Regional Park Authority. The following were appointed by the Town Council and RM of Key West 70 as the first Board members: George Bacon (President), Bob Moore (Secretary), Gordon Eden, Cec Stewart, Ted Myren, Howard Fohr and Dr H.C. Struthers.
