Capital Projects Fund: A New Way to Restore Oakland’s Parks
The Friends of Oakland Parks and Recreation is launching a new Capital Projects Fund. The Fund will enable Friends supporters to make donations of any size to support specific small to medium size projects. These projects include: playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, rec center refurbishments, and other maintenance and refurbishment needs.
Thanks to the generosity of Levi Strauss and Co and other community members Phase 1 one of the Town Park Project is almost done!
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 us for the ribbon cutting ceremony for Phase 1 at de Fremery Park on Saturday, November 1 at Noon. And please remember to bring your skateboard!
