Rich with history, Oakdale Park has been a recreational park for our area community since 1925. Come and spend quality time with family and friends in a serene country like atmosphere, while only being a short drive from Fort Worth. Oakdale Park is proud to have one of the largest swimming pools in the state of Texas called "The Plunge". There are various facilities in the park to host meetings, banquets, weddings, festivals, and family reunions. The Paluxy River and Big Rocks Park is just across the street. Historic downtown and Courthouse is just around the bend to fill your shopping and restaurant needs. In the evening enjoy the beautiful "River Walk" along the Paluxy River. Our goal is to make memories with you for years to come! Oakdale Park is full of fun and activities for all ages!


Oakdale Park History

Oakdale Park originally opened on May 1, 1925 - offering to the public, bungalows, cottages, permanent campsites for sale, a sanitary swimming pool, dance pavilions, and other attractions. Even before the park was built, the land and the water wells attracted people to stay here. The park is, in reality, a surviving roadside camp and motor court. Motels as we know them today didn't exist before the 1940′s. In the 1920′s and early 1930′s roadside camps gave road trip travelers a place to stay along the road but offered very little in the way of amenities. Eventually, accommodations became more elaborate. Cabins offered indoor plumbing and an opportunity for travelers to get indoors and out of the weather. Oakdale Park is, among other things, a surviving 1930′s Motor Court
