Love Your Parks Day

This is our 10th year to survey conditions in Oakland parks but we can’t do it without your help. Please join us on Saturday, October 3 at the Lakeside Park Garden Center (666 Bellevue) to survey conditions in Oakland parks. It’s fun and it’s important because ours is the only park-user survey of nearly all parks in Oakland.

We start at 8:30 am with breakfast snacks and team formation. After a short survey training we assign each team a captain/driver and 3-5 parks to survey. Surveys can be done easily on-line while in the park so smart phones will come in handy. Photos are especially useful for our report so bring your camera, too. Volunteers have consistently reported back that they enjoyed visiting new parks, talking to park users and working with their teams.

We collate and chart your survey ratings and evaluate your comments for our year-end report to City Council and our Powerpoint to Public Works Committee. All volunteers will be invited to attend that presentation in early 2016.

We look forward to seeing you on October 3rd. Please RSVP here if you plan to join us.
