Contractual CC&Rs define community 'feel 'of Big Park

How the Village came to be (part I)

Here’s where you’ll learn about the early days of the Village of Oak Creek/Big Park (why the two names?) and all about the reconstruction of SR-179 (our Main Street) and much more. Each month we’re featuring a different Village story from Loretta Benore’s wonderful 2016 book, “History, Hilarity and Heartbreak.” These stories were part of Loretta’s popular column in The Villager called “Days of Yore” that ran in the early 2000’s. The stories have been updated, expanded & compiled for this book and The Villager will be exclusively excerpting some of them.
