Volunteer Opportunities

Park and Wooded Lots

Playground at Oakwoods
Basketball Court
Paul Baker Pavilion

The Association maintains a large park that can be accessed from the North by sidewalk off Juniper (just west of Woodhavens/Juniper stop sign), or from the South using the asphalt path at the north end of Palm Court. There is a mulched playground at the north end, the Paul Baker Pavilion in the center, a Basketball Court at the south end, and plenty of space for imaginations to roam and for play. The park is open from dawn ’til dusk.

Families may also enjoy the wooded areas for hikes and exploration. For safety reasons and to respect the natural areas, no removal of brush, wood or trees and no building of forts or construction of any kind is allowed without Board permission.

It is highly recommended that children are supervised at all times.

Garbage and Recycling

Garbage is picked up every Thursday. Recycling and yard waste are picked up on alternating weeks. Please note that grass clippings will not be picked up. Typically there is a free bulk waste pickup scheduled each spring and fall.

Please see the City of Bloomington website for more detailed information. Also, check out the Ecology Action Center website for more information on recycling and composting.

Storage Lot

Oakwoods subdivision has a unique gem. The free storage lot is available for homeowners in the subdivision to park items that cannot be parked on their property per OHA Covenants Article 5, Section 14. In order to maintain this privilege and maintain the storage lot, each year we ask homeowners to provide the following information for each item kept in the storage lot: name, address, phone #, email address, description of the item, license plate number (tags must be up to date). The homeowner must also be current on their OHA dues. After this information has been received, a yearly sticker will be placed on the front of the item.  

If an item is in the lot without a sticker, the Storage Lot Committee will do its best to try and notify the owner using the information that is on file. If the owner does not respond, or the information on file is not current and the owner cannot be notified, the item will be towed at the OWNER’S EXPENSE.

The current committee is also hopeful that homeowners using the lot will be willing to pitch in when help is needed. This could be physical help with weeds, trimming branches, etc. or with serving on the committee. If you’re interested in learning more, or helping when the need arises, please email storagelot@oakwoodshomeowners.org.
