The Oak Park Neighborhood Association (OPNA) was formed to work on making certain that the area benefited from the economic growth of the city and that Oak Park receive its share of city services and resources.

Oak Park Neighborhood Association works to make Oak Park the best neighborhood in Sacramento to live, work and play where diversity is valued and unity is achieved.
Oak Park Neighborhood Association, a community building organization, serves as a resource to inform & advocate for the quality of life in our neighborhood.

OPNA works to build the finest expression of community in the Oak Park neighborhood. Its goal remains to raise the expectations not only of residents, entrepreneurs, and especially its school-age children, but also of the surrounding neighborhoods, the city, the county, and the Sacramento region as a whole.



At the OP Community Center–3425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Last month we identified issues that plague all parts of the neighborhood.
This month, we band together with city officials, departments and other organizations to get proactive in solving these problems!
Meet neighbors with similar concerns and the folks who are instrumental in solving them.
We’ll start with social-time at 5:30 then right on to business at 6! Come for all or just a few minutes; just join us.

DON’T LOSE TO THE TRASH  Saturday July 11, 7 -11 a.m.

Join your neighbors for the OPNA’s COMMUNITY CLEANUP as we grab our gloves, bags, brooms and pickers to grab trash (and Independence Day fireworks debris) to make the street cleaner and safer for the middle of Summer.
We’ll meet in front of Father KBK School, then split up to head towards 12th/14th Ave and Broadway.
NO NEED TO SIGN UP, JUST SHOW UP! We’ll have the supplies and tools, we just need you! Show up any time, 7-11am, (but early is best!)
Please where closed-toe-and-heal shoes, and sun protection and a refillable water bottle would be a strongly suggested. We’ll have some snacks and water on hand.
All participants will be signing a simple waiver before starting.
Please post this flier where you can–we appreciate it!  volunteers@OakParkNA.com

The Historic Center of Oak Park, 35th & Broadway, is quickly realizing the dream of new housing and commercial spaces. The Broadway Triangle Project will bring nearly 30 new homes (mix of apartments and single-family homes) and much needed retail spaces.
The resurgence of this section of Oak Park is an exciting opportunity to bring the region to our beautiful community. We are working to create a more inviting and welcoming area that will give residents and visitors a variety of choices for dining, shopping and relaxing.

Oak Park, and Sacramento, will truly benefit the most if the reduction in crime, new construction, and new businesses is shared by the entire neighborhood. Oak Park has a long and vibrant history that we embrace and cherish. Oak Park is also home to one of the most diverse populations in the United States and we value that. Working as a community, we will make certain our voices are heard as we encourage development, invite change, and protect our neighbors. It is a delicate balance to find between history and progress. OPNA is dedicated to “Creating Our Future, While Preserving Our History“.

What can we accomplish together? Anything!

  1. When are the meetings? I represent Oak Park Little League and they need the communities assistance with donations for field improvements, snack bar supplies and/or cash donations. Businesses in Oak Park that would like to sponsor a great organization please contact 916 533 7953

  2. We would like to join you & help out with the efforts of Oak Park renewal. My Family & I are currently excitedly waiting to move into our home in Oak Park this month!!! We purposely moved into Oak Park for it’s rich History & diversity. When we heard about the efforts of revitalizing, we knew we had to get involved!!! I once was a member of my home towns Chamber of commerce & worked with it’s Downtown Association. Events, Fundraising, community out reach is one of things I personal enjoy!

  3. My husband and I moved to the neighborhood in May and would love to get involved. Is there a listserv that you can add us to so we can stayed informed?

  4. Besides it being helped, I’ve also heard that there was this place call bloom house or epic bloom house and that it was great! I’m cerious to know where it is. The community looks like a lot of people are working to make it a sustainable place to live and that should hopefully lower the crime rates and stuff!

  5. I’m considering relocating to Sacramento this summer. I’m interested in the possibility of preserving neighborhoods through land trusts or cohousing models to preserve the cottages in the Oak Park area. I will be working with a local Remax agent (Anthony Nelson) to locate an inexpensive home. My hope is to locate in an area and be part of a program (or create a program!) to revitalize the neighborhood without displacing those who live there. I welcome any feedback you may have. Thank you!

  9. Oak Park Preschool Inc. serve 3 and 4 year olds in the community. We are interested in being involved in the OPNA network to share how we are serving the community, and to determine how we can continue to provide quality early childhood education to the community. This year is the 50th anniversary of Oak Park Preschool. Many of our parents actually attended the preschool themselves and now have children that are attending. We have a reputation of having children well prepared when they enter kindergarten. I would welcome the opportunity to attend the next meeting to share how children in the community could benefit from our services. We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
