Oakland experienced a network outage that continues to affect some services. While many systems have been restored, some non-emergency services are still currently impacted.

Lincoln Square Park and Recreation Center

We're a public transit friendly park and Recreation Center with two lighted outdoor playgrounds, Adult Fitness Stations, custom Tot-Lot, and "Chinese Junk-Boat" themed play-area with ADA accessibility.



Located in Oakland Chinatown, Lincoln Square features Tai Chi, Tai Chi Swords, Tai Chi Fan, Chi Gong, Chinese Folk Dance, Chinese Orchestra, Cantonese Opera, and a Mandarin Choir.

Lincoln Square offers a variety of programs just for girls throughout the year, and is the training facility for the City of Oakland’s City-Wide Volleyball Program. Our 15-under team won the 15-under Gold Division of the United States Youth Games (USYG) Championships in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

We offer swim lessons to all Summer Camp participants through the Oakland Parks, Recreation and Youth Development Aquatics Division, at DeFremery Pool.

If a request is approved for an event within two weeks to 30 days, there is an additional Administrative Service Fee. NO reservation requests are accepted less than two weeks in advance.
