About this Location

The 35.4-acre South Shore Veterans Park is located both north and south of Bayshore Road in Oregon. Many of the park’s recreational amenities, including a picnic shelter, ball fields, playground, basketball court, open space, an exercise trail, and an observation/sledding hill overlooking Lake Erie are on the south side of the road.

The north side of the park features a paved and lighted concrete, handicapped accessible walkway with benches overlooking Maumee Bay. The 600-foot boardwalk is armored with large limestone boulders and provides fishing access. In November 2001, the walkway was rededicated and named the James A. Haley Boardwalk, in honor of his public service to the citizens of the city for more than a quarter-century.

South Shore Veterans Park is a convergence point for two bike trails that follow Bayshore and Stadium roads. The routes are components in an extensive network of biking trails that, when complete, will link the Maumee River to the west of Oregon to Maumee Bay State Park on the city’s east end. Many side-route bikeways are found along the way.

The James “Wes” Hancock Oregon Senior Center is also located at South Shore Veterans Park. It is a gathering place for local seniors offering various recreation, nutrition, education, and social programs along with volunteer opportunities.
