Our Mission 

To bring the community together to raise the money needed to purchase 517 N. Lake Road for a legacy park that will be used for generations. We believe this park will add to the character that makes Oconomowoc so special by providing a green space to improve our community – whether to watch sunsets, portage between lakes, fishing, or just relax when walking around Fowler Lake.

Abigail Engstrand Special Gift of Art for those who donate $50 or more!

For donations over $50, you can receive a signed print by local artist Abigail Engstrand at the Oconomowoc library on set dates listed below. Visit Abigail in the Spaulding Conference Room on November 22 (Sunday), December 5, and December 19 (Saturdays), January 2, and 16 (Saturdays) from 1pm to 3pm.
