The City of Oakland Park held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, October 20th, 2023, for the North Andrews Gardens Community Center. The $6 million project at 250 NE 56th Court includes a new community center with multi-purpose rooms, outdoor covered seating, a playground, a basketball court, and public parking.
The North Andrews Gardens Community Center is the first new building and second project completed as part of the Comprehensive Facilities Plan aimed at Building Oakland Park’s Second Century. Funded through a bond that was approved by 67 percent of voters in 2018, the Facilities Plan is a ten-year redevelopment initiative to construct and renovate several buildings leading up to Oakland Park’s centennial in 2029.
The City has spent years gathering input and planning for its future. With the opening of the North Andrews Gardens Community Center, we are bringing the vision for Oakland Park’s second century to life. As bond projects are completed, they provide new amenities that will have a lasting impact on families in our community for generations. Oakland Park opened City Park, the first completed bond project, in October 2022.
The North Andrews Gardens Community Center project was designed by Currie Sowards Aguila Architects and constructed by State Contracting and Engineering Corp. The project was partially funded through a $250,000 Land and Water Conservation Fund grant from the Department of Environmental Protection.
