The City of Oakley’s Civic Center Plaza includes City Offices, City Hall, a public
park and a separate restaurant site.
Three aging Coast Live Oak Trees were retained as central features of the City’s
new park. Many new Oaks were planted for future shade. A significant portion of
the Park is planted with an unmowed blend of grasses to allow recreational activity
and conserve irrigation water.
Important areas of the project, such as the entry drives, are accented with colorful
plantings. Other portions of the site have a more natural appearance.
The park site was designed to accentuate the existing Oak trees and serve as a gathering
place for City functions, including festivals and a weekly farmer’s market. Picnic
areas are located around the existing Oaks and a stage with infrastructure for portable
sound systems is provided.
