HUDSON — The community will have its say on how to redesign Oakdale Park to increase recreation.

What used to be a bustling park with ice skating, barbecues and luaus, the lake has largely been limited to fishing and swimming in recent years. Its beach house has fallen into disrepair and its shoreline fishing is limited to one pier.

But one group is trying to change that.

The Friends of Oakdale Lake — a group of active city residents — banded together earlier this year to increase recreational opportunities at the park and bring awareness to one of the city’s most underused resources.
