Creekside Park opens in Oakley


On Saturday morning Oakley opened its 31st park. The first phase of Creekside Park, located at the corner of Laurel Ave. and Creekside, includes a parking lot, playground, 2 bocce ball courts, a BMX dirt track and a skate park. A restroom will be added this year.

The ribbion cutting ceremony drew quite a crowd for a cold and damp morning. With Oakley Rec. staff on hand to run the event all the amenities were in use in short order.

Through a grant of more than $1 million provided by the California River Parkways Program over 1,000 feet of Marsh Creek will be restored. The grant also provides for the building of a pedestrian bridge linking the Marsh Creek Regional Trail to Creekside Park, the planting of shade trees and the construction of a creekside nature trail.
