Oakland Billard Park, located in the Oakland area not far from the Sardou Bridge, has a little bit of everything, from a playground to a community center. Park goers will find a small swimming pool and baseball and softball backstops. Basketball hoops are located off the parking lot. Oakland Billard Park also features a concrete refuge for skateboarders, known as the Mouse Trap Skate Park. For children, its play area includes some classic playground toys, including teeter-totters, a kid-powered merry-go-round, swings, a slide and a climbing toy that resembles a car. A trail links to nearby Santa Fe Park -- a piece that will eventually link into the longer Shunga Trail.

And that's just what you'll find outside. Inside the Oakland Community Center you'll discover a full-court, air conditioned gym that can be rented for basketball games, volleyball games and other purposes. The gym even features adjustable goals on its sides to accommodate younger basketball players. The center also offers a free fitness center with weights, bikes, a treadmill and elliptical machines. A free orientation to the weight room is available. Locker rooms available. Also available for free are smaller rooms within the center. Additionally, the center features a licensed preschool and New Directions, a high school diploma completion program. The center is open 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
