This past Tuesday, the Oakley City Council cut the ribbon on the City of Oakley’s newest park which is an all‐ abilities playground at Civic Center Park in downtown Oakley.
The city said after one of the large 200-year-old oak trees fell down a few months ago, the Public Works team got straight to work on filling in the large void that was left behind. A lot of thought and planning has gone into this project in regards to the location, aesthetics, and functionality; and believe that the end result will be years of enjoyment for the residents of Oakley.
This brand new all abilities playground includes many different components to bring children of various abilities together, featuring: visual, textile, audible, and vestibular stimuli on many levels for diverse abilities. The playground also comes with Oakley’s first digitally interactive components that utilize an app called Biba.
No Wi‐Fi? No worries. The City of Oakley offers free public Wi‐Fi at 4 of its locations. Free public Wi‐Fi can be found at Creekside Park, Civic Center Park, Oakley Plaza, and Nunn‐ Wilson/Koda Dog Park.
Some other renovations at Civic Center Park include a large 30-foot-tall redwood tree with a gathering circle and walking path, expanded turf areas, expanded amphitheater seating, and an improved picnic area.
