Parks and Landscape
The mission of the City of Oakley Parks and Landscape Division is to provide clean, safe, well-maintained, inviting and sustainable parks, landscape areas, and recreation facilities for the enjoyment of Oakley residents and visitors.
The Division and staff values public service, people, teamwork, innovation, quality, integrity, excellence and the environment.
Under the direction of the Public Works Department, the City of Oakley Parks and Landscape Division is responsible for maintaining over 102 acres of developed park land (32 parks) in the system that includes many modern park amenities and provides many options for varied recreation uses, almost 45 acres of unimproved park land and open spaces, and approximately 56 acres of landscaped street medians, planters, and streetscapes, with the majority of the maintenance and operations costs funded through landscape and lighting assessment districts.
The maintenance services are divided into one (1) general city-wide zone and twenty-six (26) specific benefit zones throughout the City with in-house staff and contracted landscape maintenance services performing the work. Maintenance tasks include playground equipment, athletic fields and courts, mowing, edging, irrigation, tree trimming, litter control, graffiti removal, vandalism repair, weed abatement, pest control, general landscape maintenance and special projects, just to name a few.
