About

The City is designing a creek restoration project that will be built in three sections of Courtland Creek Park. The Courtland Creek Restoration Project (Project), an Oakland Measure DD Initiative, will protect, enhance, and restore approximately 950 feet of open creek channel.

The Project will improve creek habitat and water quality, reduce trash accumulation and illegal dumping, repair steep and eroding creek banks, enhance climate change resilience and park appearance, and serve the community as an educational and recreational resource. Accessible seating, gathering places, and a creek-viewing overlook will also be provided.

Project partners include the Oakland Parks and Recreation Foundation (OPRF), the Friends of Courtland Creek, and local schools. City staff are pursuing grant opportunities to secure the remaining $1.5 million needed for the Project and have received grants from the California Department of Water Resources ($1 million) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency, San Francisco Bay Water Quality Improvement Fund ($1.5 million).

The Project consultant has completed draft 30% designs, which staff and OPRF will present to the public this summer (2021) in accordance with the Project’s equity-focused public engagement plan. The current anticipated Project construction date is Spring 2023.
