About the Center
The Sports Center is part of the Complex located within the William “Bill” Patterson Park and includes state-of-the-art fitness, aquatic and dance centers, as well as Ira Jinkins Recreation Center and gymnasium, tennis courts, baseball diamond, and toddler playground. The concept for the East Oakland Sports Center (EOSC) originated with a vision from Councilmember Reid to create a recreation complex and destination venue for the city of Oakland residents and visitors that is affordable, accessible and available.
