Thank you to our amazing players and generous sponsors who made the 2021 Parks Challenge such a success! A special shout out to our presenting sponsors The Trust for Public Land and Oakland Athletics. More than 200 teams completed 1,300 missions at parks across Oakland, from DeFremery Park to Leona Heights Park and so many places in between. We saw silly dances and beautiful views, family picnics and slippery slides. It was such a gift to see Oakland's parks through your eyes! Let's keep exploring them together.

Vamos a tener una Búsqueda de Huevos de Pascua y Limpieza del Parque a fin de mes y todos están invitados. ¡Trae a la familia y recolecta huevos coloridos mientras recolectas basura para ayudar a mantener el parque limpio para que todos disfruten! Más información aquí: https://fb.me/e/GECMNo2y We're having an Easter Egg Hunt & Park Cleanup at the end of the month and you're all invited. Bring out the family and collect colorful eggs while you pick litter to help keep the Park clean for everyone to enjoy! More info here: https://fb.me/e/GECMNo2y
Redwood Heights Park will eventually (hopefully sooner) build a small skate park. It's in the redesign plan that the Redwoods Heights Association (an Oakland community association that welcomes all Oakland neighbors and supporters) has created and is fundraising for. It's been a time-consuming process, and the city doesn't have funds for park renovations and upgrades, especially given the tanking economy and decrease in tax revenue since the pandemic. Folks interested in donating, volunteering to find donors and funding, or to assist in other meaningful ways, can visit our page or website and introduce yourself, indicating your interest. Donations welcome.
It's so hard to anticipate when Joaquin Miller's car access (for the parking lots) will be gated off on weekends. Is there some way to check this before going up? For a while it seemed like it was always gated off on weekends, then for a while not. As far as I understand, the current Covid-19 regulations haven't been flagging outdoor (masked) activities/gatherings as high-risk. I mainly ask because I have some seniors/disabled friends who basically can't safely access the dog park when those gates are closed. It'd be good to know ahead of time if it's worth the drive up for them.
Please join us in celebrating the nation's first wildlife refuge! Free.
This has been building up at the Joaquin Miller Large Dog Play Area since last week. Can somebody please take care of it before the weekend?
Is there a way we can install more pull-up bars at the public parks in Oakland?
