The West Oakland Urban Farm and Park is 1.4 acre working urban farm, educational space, and outdoor recreation site located at 2847 Peralta St. in Oakland, CA. It was created and conceived by and for the 3,000 community members in the surrounding neighborhoods, and intended to be a focal point of community pride for all 23,000 residents of West Oakland. It is a safe space for recreation and connects neighbors in one of the most underserved pockets of California; promotes environmental conservation, serves as an example of how we can reclaim the ecological integrity of the land; and expand access to healthy foods for low income families in Oakland.
Public Park & Community Garden is open daily from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm)

City Slicker Farms conducted a three-month-long community design process with West Oakland youth, seniors, and families to determine what they wanted in the new park.
The West Oakland Urban Farm and Park includes a number of features to increase environmental sustainability: drip irrigation, rainwater catchment, recycled and reused construction materials, native plants, organic cultivation methods, habitat for pollinators, growing food locally, environmental education programs, recycling and composting receptacles with educational signage, and extensive plantings of trees.
