Redwood Heights Park is located at the intersection of Redwood Road and Aliso Avenue in Oakland. The park is in desperate need of a makeover. The project is in the fundraising phase (Phase 3). Be sure to stop by the Redwood Heights Recreation Center to see the preliminary concept design plan (Phase 2). It's pretty amazing!
The 39th Avenue Garden (an Adopt-A-Spot initiative) is located at the intersection of 39th Avenue and Victor Avenue in Oakland. Neighbors have maintained this garden for 20 years, but recently EBMUD shut down the water source. Saving this garden is an issue of maintaining neighborhood security, as well as preserving a beautiful community asset.
