The Site

The park contains three distinct areas:

Historic Core adobe area

This City of Oakland Park is a great place to play and to learn. Here you can see footprints of two original adobe structures built in 1820 and 1840 as well as a reconstruction and outline of the hacienda wall dating from the Spanish and Mexican eras. Within the hacienda walls, there were once 22 outbuildings, a well/fountain, an outdoor oven and a landmark Spanish Pine tree, planted by the Peraltas. Enjoy outdoor historical exhibits, a native plants garden, and historically themed play structures. The park is open all day, year round for community recreation. The park can be rented for events through Oakland Parks and Recreation.

1870 Peralta House

A local and state landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this farmhouse represents Spanish-speaking California on the cusp of a new era after the Gold Rush and annexation of California by the United States. Externally, the house is restored and maintained to its original appearance, and inside it houses permanent and temporary exhibits, as well as administrative offices.

Peralta Creek nature area

A wooded slope descends to a winding stretch of creek, recalling 15,000 years of Native Californian habitation and the primordial flora and fauna of the region. Today, the creek area provides shady outdoor space for community programs, classes, and recreation. The park masterplan would add an ADA-compliant ramp a beautiful plaza with commissioned artwork, and native plants. Donate now to make it possible!
