The 25,000 square foot East Oakland Sports Center offers a wide variety of year-round recreation programs emphasizing health, wellness and fitness that are available to all ages.
Phase II facility expansion funding and sponsorship opportunities are available. Interested parties should call the Office of Parks and Recreation at (510) 238-7275.
