Who We Are And What We Do

Since incorporation in 1997, the Council has provided the Big Park Region, including the Village of Oak Creek, with a structured, representational organization to serve the community’s interests.

We represent more than 6,100 citizens

Today the Council includes 23 Residential, Business and Educational organizations, who in turn, represent more than 6,100 citizens. The Council’s focus is not limited to our members. Unlike individual HOA’s and enterprises – our mission embraces the best interests of the entire community.

The Big Park Council acts as the voice of the Village to government and private organizations affecting Village life. The Council provides unique value to the region in the form of communication, education, and collaboration.

The Council meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 9am.  Currently, all meetings are via Zoom.  Sign up for our Newsletter to receive Community News and meeting details.  Check the calendar for future meeting dates.
