After 42 years in the same home, my parents bought a home in Oak Lane to retire in a maintenance provided community. They loved their neighbors, the way the grounds were kept, and the red and green Christmas lights in December that the homes association placed in the exterior lights on each home. The homeowners gathered often for meals and conversation. My family spent many 4th of Julys in the driveway on a lawn chair with homemade ice cream watching the fireworks display from Oak Grove Park in Gladstone. They danced straight above our heads. A very pleasant and friendly subdivision with quality built homes and neighbors.
