Splash Pad Park & Splash Pad Newsletter

This website is primarily about Splash Pad Park in Oakland – its history and the role it currently plays as the centerpiece of a large, very diverse, incredibly vibrant urban community. The most important and dynamic component of the site, however, is the Splash Pad News, which has gradually shifted its focus, over time, to cover the park’s surrounding neighborhoods. This monthly online publication helps keep its readership informed; supports locally owned businesses; and encourages volunteer participation and involvement in decisions that affect our community.
