Oakley Recreation Center grand opening in April

Construction nearing completion.


APRIL 16, 2019, OAKLEY, CALIFORNIA: The ribbon cutting ceremony for the new recreation center in Oakland occurred under blue skies. The Oakley Recreation Center is a new one-story building constructed on the existing city property south of O’Hara Park Middle School. The building is designed for a variety of community events and recreation activities.

The new structure includes two enclosed community rooms, an office/conference area; two multi-use restrooms; storage; mechanical and electrical spaces; kitchen and food storage area and an uncovered patio.

Project site improvements include grading, landscaping and irrigation, retaining walls, bioswales, site paths, service pad, access to mechanical and electrical closets, permeable paving, bicycle and vehicular parking, concrete curbs and sidewalks, and tree replacement.

The Oakley Recreation Center is designed to demonstrate sustainable building design. In addition to those cited above, green design features include daylighting, high-performing building envelope including low-emissivity dual glazing, sunscreens and window shading, Forest Stewardship Certified wood, high-efficiency mechanical, electrical and lighting systems, low-flow plumbing fixtures; high-recycled content materials, low formaldehyde and VOC building materials. The design team worked closely with the Oakley Public Works director and department staff to create flexible spaces that will serve the community for many years to come.
