Built by over 1,300 volunteers in 2001 and sustained over the years by volunteer maintenance and generous donations, Frog Park is a testament to the power of a community-driven vision.

About Frog Park and FROG

What was once a vacant lot overgrown with weeds is now one of Oakland’s most popular parks. It’s a local treasure that started with the simple notion that our neighborhood needed a safe place for kids to play. Now it’s ours to maintain and enhance.
