More About Oak Creek Charter School of Bonita Springs
The Oak Creek Charter School of Bonita Springs was named in recognition of the Oak Creek Waterway and Preserve that is located along the north and south sides of Oak Creek. The Oak Creek Preserve is located in the City of Bonita Springs on the west side of Matheson Avenue, south of Dean Street, and north of Bonita Beach Road.
According to local historians, Oak Creek was once the Imperial River's major tributary, and many pioneer families settled along its banks. Just a few decades ago, boats traveled up Oak Creek. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection designated Oak Creek as an Outstanding Florida Waterway in recognition of its importance as a tributary to the health of Estero Bay.
