Our Upcoming Events
Come Out and Play the OPR Way
OPR PLAYS WITH A PURPOSE- There is a purpose for our play, play is more than physical activity & bouncing balls. Play produces great outcomes. Our babies learn when they play; our children are healthier when they play. Our youth are engaged when they play; our families are unified when they play. Our communities thrive when they play with a purpose - our purpose is to Expose, Enlighten, Empower and Encourage Educational Excellence through Recreational Experiences.
Seasonal activities and camps at our Recreation Centers may be found under Recreation Center & Facilities, Cultural Arts Programs, and Sports.

Basketball in Oakland
Experience Oakland: Play Pick-Up Basketball
38th Notes - By Coolhand Luke | April 5th, 2013
Whether you used to play semi-pro ball or just like to play for fun, I highly recommend lacing up your shoes, heading to a local park, and shooting with a couple friends. A game will start organically, you’ll have a blast, and you’ll meet an interesting cast of characters.
