Town Park was created in 2007 by Keith “K-Dub” Williams with the help, love, and support of the local skateboard community at historic De Fremery Park in West Oakland. K-Dub and the City of Oakland worked together to build a “skater built” dynamic wood structure skatepark for Oakland and Bay Area youth. The goal was to create a facility that would allow our youth to stay in their own community instead of traveling to neighboring city skateparks.
The site has been a destination site for many local youth and adults of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds, and has become a hub where all can come together to learn and showcase their skills. Every day, the skatepark is the busiest facility at De Fremery Park, and the culture of the skate area represents the very best of Oakland. Town Park has hosted many amazing skateboard events, contests and demos attracting large numbers of skaters and spectators — including pros like Karl Watson, Ron Allen, Corey Duffel, Walker Ryan, Theotis Beasley, and Lizard King.
Stop by Town Park and watch our next generation of great skateboarders working on their skate game! Proceeds from Town Park gear (available online and in the Oaklandish downtown shop on Broadway) go toward building the skatepark.
