About FirstPark

FirstPark Business Park, Oakland, MaineThe FirstPark business park is located in the town of Oakland, 15 miles north of the state capital in Augusta. FirstPark is immediately adjacent to Interstate 95. There is one mile of visible frontage to I-95. A 1,500 foot access road connects the park to the entrance located on Kennedy Memorial Drive.

The 285-acre property has been developed as a campus with professional landscaping integrated with the natural terrain and flora. The park is situated on a ridge two miles west of the Kennebec River. The soil consists of a thin layer of topsoil, typical of the region, overlaying glacial till atop granite bedrock.

Much of the property is heavily wooded with a variety of hardwood and evergreen species representative of the area. Elevation ranges from ~390 feet at the entrance to ~240 feet approximately 6,000 feet to the northwest.

The business park comprises 17 building sites ranging from 5 to 24 total acres, 3.5 to 13.5 buildable acres. The park is fully permitted from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, Maine Department of Transportation and the Army Corps of Engineers, and is a fully approved subdivision of the Town of Oakland.


Kennebec Regional Development Authority (KRDA) is governed by a General Assembly which has representatives from all 23 towns and a 12-member Executive Board. The Executive Board meets monthly, and the General Assembly meets quarterly. The organization has adopted a set of by-laws which provide for the duties of both bodies.

This governance model is very similar to many towns and cities that have select boards/town councils and an annual town meeting. The General Assembly adopts the annual budget and other operating policies and the Executive Board is responsible for the daily operation of FirstPark.

The FirstPark business office at 46C FirstPark Drive is open Monday–Friday from 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
