Dimond Park--a creek flows through it

This couple is enjoying Sausal Creek burble at their feet as it runs through Dimond Park.  Most of Oakland's creeks were put underground years ago.  The creek's riparian community is being restored by volunteers.  The park itself, situated in the Dimond District, offers various play activities and is situated on the ancestral land of the Dimond family who settled in 1867.


  1. welcome and I look forward to more great images. Happy New Year and I wish you many good photos in 2010!

  2. Welcome to citydailyphoto and I am so happy, as a former Oaklander (now in Michigan), to bookmark your blog!! I have taken many a "troop" of neighborhood kids for a walk down from Redwood Park to Dimond Canyon. So great to see it!
