Town Park: The Home for Oakland’s Youth Action Sports!

The Friends of Oakland Parks and Recreation is proud to sponsor groups―too small to have their own nonprofit status―who do fantastic work in the community to help kids and improve parks. One group that we are particularly proud to sponsor and work with is Town Park.

Located at de Fremery Park since 2007, Town Park has served as a hub for Oakland’s skateboard community. Under the guidance of Keith “K-Dub” Williams, Town Park has become a destination skate-park for local youth of all skill levels, and backgrounds, becoming a local hub where everyone can come together to learn and showcase their skills.

Please join our efforts to upgrade the Town Park site into a World-Class facility that will give our youth the best platform possible to shine and put Oakland youth on the action sports map!
