Oakwood Neighborhood Association

Oakwood was founded in 1908 and incorporated in 1947.  It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city of Kalamazoo.  It has almost 900 homes and businesses, and is located in the southwest corner of the city.  Neighborhood boundaries include Parkview Avenue to the north and Edgewood Street to the south, Oak Ridge Street to the east and Wood Street to the west.

The Oakwood Neighborhood Association facility includes an office, community room, and youth/family resource room. The office is staffed by a half time director and volunteers.  The Association is active in providing programs such as after school activities, senior drop in, Friends of Woods Lake, holiday theme parties, annual reunions, free bread distribution, holiday food baskets, Building Blocks of Kalamazoo, and Adopt A Park.  The Association also produces and distributes a monthly newsletter.

The mission of the Oakwood Neighborhood Association is to promote neighborhood leadership, responsibility and civic interest among the people of the community; and to provide assistance and support for resident participation in programs, projects, and events designed to better the quality of life for all residents of Oakwood.
