Incorporated in 1892, Oakdale is a small town of 1,500 people at the edge of Allegheny County. It is affectionately known as "america's Home Town".
Oakdale is famous in the region for being hit by the remnants of Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The flooding caused a large scale evacuation of the community and brought Red Cross volenteers and National Guard members to the area in an effort to control the confusion. The flooding destroyed businesses, many of which never reopened and displaced many residents whose homes were condemned.
Located in Oakdale's picturesque downtown, the lot also functions as a community event center hosting festivals and fairs.
Varies per event.
When not used as a parking lot, visitors can park in a lot 1 1/2 blocks away.
