Consolidation No Longer Being Pursued

September 14, 2016

Supervisor Susan Peters has acknowledged the unanimous recommendations by both the Mission Oaks and the Carmichael Recreation & Park Districts to oppose consolidation of the two districts, and has agreed that consolidation will no longer be pursued.  The Advisory Board of Directors for both districts have recommended Option #2 from the Consolidation Study.  Supervisor Peters supports that recommendation, which states:

“Do Not consolidate, but make select operational changes to improve efficiency & cost effectiveness of operations”

Please view the Memo document for an update on the consolidation decision. The consolidation study is also available for you to review

The Eastern Oak Park Expansion is Delayed

Due to contractual delays and the desire to avoid construction during rainy months, the Eastern Oak Park expansion project is being further delayed. Construction of new infrastructure and amenities at Eastern Oak Park are now anticipated to begin during the spring of 2017. New park features are to include an expansive plaza, pickleball courts, a futsal court, an off-leash dog area, new playground equipment, a restroom building, extended walking trails, picnic areas, and added shade among other things.

Continue to check this website for updates, or call the District Office at 488-2810. 

Eastern Oak Park is located at 3127 Eastern Ave.
