Oakland Gazebo Committee

A group of local citizens and Municipal employees have formed a committee who will be brainstorming ways to finance and build a gazebo at the Messalonslee Boat Landing and Swim area.

The benefits of a Gazebo in this location are plentiful. We can offer a summer time music series, a beautiful location for weddings, a building to allow swimmers a break from the summer sun, an outdoor classroom for school children and the list goes on and on.
