Main Content

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 shifted its focus over time to cover the park’s surrounding neighborhoods. This monthly newsletter aims keep its readership informed; support locally owned businesses; and encourage volunteer participation and involvement in decisions that affect our community.
