A future recreation space along Dark Hollow Road soon will have a designated name.
On Monday, Oakmont Council is expected to approve the name Creekside Park for the new area.
The creation of the area is part of a settlement between the borough and Kacin Co. The developer is responsible for creating the recreation space because its Edgewater at Oakmont housing plan doesn't contain recreation space, per zoning regulations.
Oakmont Recreation Board member Tom Bland said members liked the Creekside Park name because it goes hand-in-hand with Riverside Park, the main park in the borough. Another option was Creekside Sports Park, but the rec board and council favored the first option.
Creekside Park is expected to have a gravel parking lot, soccer field, little league baseball field and a field house—with restrooms, storage and a concession stand. The facility most likely would be used by the Riverview Athletic Association and Twin Boro Soccer.
The park could be open to the public in July of this year.
