Celebrating 50 years as a gathering space for our community
At Lake Park, we have a history of deep ties to the Oakland area. One of the many ways in which we maintain those ties is to open our doors to local organizations. Here, they conduct vital business, encourage lifelong learning, support young people, make music and art, and much more.
We also have a strong tradition of volunteerism, inviting residents to go out into the community and give back. Here are some of the many ways we serve the Oakland area from the inside, and the outside.
On-site meetings of local organizations
- The League of Women Voters hosts election-related events on our campus
- Lake Park hosts bridge tournaments between several local bridge groups, including friendly competition with another senior living community
- Lake Park hosts Black Women Stirring the Waters group meetings
- The Camp Fire Girls Association meets and holds its annual luncheon at Lake Park
- Lake Park provides meeting space for local book clubs
On-site meetings and events for music and the arts
- Lake Park hosts an annual arts-and-crafts show attended by our residents and members of the community
- We provide meeting space for area musical groups, including a local string quintet
On-site classes and lectures (open to the public)

On-site center for civic services
