Oakley- A Place for Families in the Heart of the Delta

June 1, 2017

The City of Oakley, situated between Antioch and Bethel Island in East Contra Costa County, is a place where families are welcome. Through local government, educational and cultural support programs and resources, Oakley is a community which truly reflects its motto. The quality of support available to Oakley families has also gained a top honor for the second year in a row. The non-profit organization, KaBOOM!, has recently named Oakley as a Playful City USA, confirming Oakley as a “Place for families in the heart of the Delta”.

A recent article in East County Today included the announcement of the Playful City USA designation for Oakley. It is their all-encompassing approach which has made the city an excellent community model for families, and a place where more families are seeking to live.

The City of Oakley has planning measures in place for new housing developments, where a minimum requirement of outdoor play areas must be met. The Youth Empowerment Program provided vital opportunities for middle school and high school aged students to have a voice in government, and truly make a difference.

In addition to better access for children of varying abilities, there are also interactive areas for children with hearing or vision impairments. This unique place, the World of Discovery at Crockett Park, also has a variety of sporting fields including tennis and basketball courts, alongside family picnic areas.

KaBOOM! is a national organization working to help all children across the country to enjoy a healthy and balanced childhood with regular and active play. Easy access to play resources and recreational activities helps children grow into healthier, active adults. When communities incorporate these ideas directly, the community as a whole is made better, becoming places where families want to live and thrive.
