The green pastures and orchards of the valley floor are contrasted with the rugged cliffs and glacial features of the Okanogan country, a beautiful setting for this City of Oroville Veteran’s Memorial Park recreation site. The Park consists of sandy lakeshore, green lawns, and shade trees in contrast with the hot, arid conditions that prevail in the area.
Available activities include boating (one boat launch ramp), fishing, swimming, watersports, bird watching, and horseshoes. Fish of all kinds are abundant in the lake and river.

Oroville's Adopt-A-Park Program is a public service program to beautify our city parks and to create and promote neighborhood and community involvement. The AAP (Adopt-A-Park) program encourages volunteers, with the assistance of the City of Oroville and The Oroville Initiative (TOI), to adopt a park in Oroville for regular maintenance and cleanups.
Volunteers identify safety hazards and freely communicate other issues associated with their designated park. The city provides the necessary equipment for the cleanups and a sign at the chosen site recognizing the volunteer group. The program is suitable for community groups, businesses, churches, scouts, students, individual citizens, etc.
