  • Live Oak Park is a 9-acre park nestled just west of I Avenue and Live Oak Street in Hesperia, at 17427 Live Oak St. This neighborhood park is a very popular facility with the nearby residents.
    Opened in 1983, Live Oak Park offers a variety of amenities to the community, such as picnic areas, playground equipment, a baseball field, open turf space and a BMX track.
    Live Oak Park has been the home to many local youth sports organizations that use the baseball field and surrounding space for their practices and games. Prior to the construction of Hesperia Community Park, the Hesperia Recreation and Park District’s sports park, this facility was also home to the district’s Adult Softball Program.
    Live Oak Park was where the district began its Movies in the Park program, which quickly outgrew the site and is now offered at Hesperia Civic Plaza Park. Over the years Live Oak Park has been the home to BMX programs and a radio-controlled car track.
    In April 2013 the park district, in cooperation with USA BMX and track operator Dan Dalton, reopened the BMX track. The sport has seen a resurgence recently since becoming an Olympic event. With the help of local volunteers, USA BMX and the track operator, Hesperia BMX has been rated one of the top tracks in Southern California.
    The sport of BMX is fun for the whole family. Even the smallest BMX fans can take a ride on the full-sized Strider Track. For information on hours and fees for the Hesperia BMX complex — or for any of the district’s facilities or programs — go to HesperiaParks.com.
    Residents can stop by and enjoy the open turf space at Live Oak Park and have a family picnic, fly a kite, play catch with a friend or just get away and relax.
