Oppold_Marina_Harbor_HouseIn 1968, the Park District received a recreational lease from the US Corp of Engineers on 31 acres now known as Harry Oppold Marina.

In 1971, the Harbor House, park roads and lighting, a 50-foot launch ramp, and 100-foot main dock, and parking lots were developed through a 100% funded grant.  It is open from 9:00AM - 3:00PM on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day weekend.

Since the leasing of Oppold, Oxbow Lake was dredged and boat slips, two picnic shelters, playground areas, landscaping and more has been added.

The Marina is open year-round from dawn until dusk.  The electronic gate opens at 5:00AM and closes at 11:00PM.
