Welcome

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.

OPNA VISION STATEMENT
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. 

OPNA MISSION STATEMENT
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.

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!

  6. I have some very important information regarding the gentrification of Oak Park. You need to know this. Please contact me

  7. I have lived in Oak Park a year now and my boss is opening up a cafe on Broadway and 32nd. We would love to get more involved in the community!

  8. Hello I represent Oak Park Little League who is in desperate need of financial and/or material donations. This season more than half of the teams will not be awarded trophies due to unpaid registration fees as we have the cheapest in the sacramento area. Oak Park being the underserved community in south sacramento needs the community and it’s businesses to help so our kids can continue to play baseball which helps keep them off the streets doing something positive. This year during the season the snack bar was closed because there is no funds to stock it. snack bar donations in the form of food and supplies are desperately needed especially for the upcoming season. I would love to attebd the next meeting and spread the word. I will see you all there or contact me if you would like to help or sponsor a great organization and some fantastic kids. Michelle Tebbs 707-450-7982. Live and work in Oak Park.
