Oak Park is Sacramento’s first suburb and has a rich and full history. Today, the area continues to shine as an example as a diverse community. Oak Park is home to people from all parts of the globe and to people of all incomes.This diversity is a source of many of the benefits of the community but also the many of the challenges.

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. What can we accomplish together? Anything!

Numerous people from the community and the local government gathered together to celebrate what is sure to become one of Sacramento’s most dynamic projects. Guests included Mayor Kevin Johnson as well as the architect of the project and of course, members of the Oak Park Neighborhood Association.
Sacramento’s mayor, important investors, people of the Oak Park community and OPNA celebrated the ground breaking of the three corners development project at the heart of Oak Park. This project, slated to be completed in a couple of years, will bring restaurants, retail, and entertainment venues to the corners of 35th and Broadway.

OPNA was proud to be a part of the event. Responsible projects like these will make the community of Oak Park a better place.
