About Oak Ridge
Oak Ridge is a small town located in Northwest Guilford County. It is home to about 6,300 residents and it is where I have called home. Oak Ridge has many things to offer its residents and has deeply lined history. Did you know that the Old Mill has been in the town since before it's founding and can be traced all the way back to the revolutionary war? The 250 year old mill STILL WORKS and is the trademark of our town and is a true beauty to see. To learn more about the Old Mill, visit The Old Mill's Website. The town has other things to offer like its own rapidly growing park which features baseball fields, football fields and running paths that are both paved and wooded trails. The town offers convenient shopping in a friendly shopping center right off HW 68. If you are looking to live in Oak Ridge, it is a beautiful place to live with some of the BEST schools around. People move to Oak Ridge specifically to get their kids into the schools because they are rated as some of the best in the state of North Carolina.

Oak Ridge Town Park
This 80-acre park is located near the corner of Linville Road and Lisa Drive. The park was founded with a Parks and Recreation Trust Fund granted to the Town of Oak Ridge. Phase I of the park has been completed with plans in place to expand the park even more. The park currently offers two lighted multi-purpose football/soccer fields, two lighted baseball/softball fields, scoreboards, paved and unpaved walking trails, picnic shelters, a large playground for the kids, a pond used to fish, a concessions stand and restroom facility. The park has added in a doggy park and several doggy stations for the occasional 'oops'! The grassy areas are perfect for picnics and family events. With its own maintenance team in place, the park is clean and organized for all residents in the area.
