Orinda Oaks Park is a park in Contra Costa County, 217 meters high. Orinda Oaks Park is located southeast of Glorietta, near Mulholland Hill.

Orinda Oaks Park is Orinda’s 12-acre hidden treasure, located on Moraga Way between Hall and Ivy Drives, the perfect spot for family, team, parties and retreats. This relaxing enclave has a barbecue area and plenty of picnic tables available to reserve. The playground encourages visitors to play a quick lawn or volleyball game, and a horseshoe pit is also available.

Eleven acres of park accessed from Moraga ‘s road between Hall and Ivy Drives is a great place to enjoy group picnics, play volleyball, horseshoes and pétanque or just relax!

Orinda Oaks Park is also a trail to the adjacent 110-acre Orinda Oaks Open Space Preserve, which has a myriad of trails that interconnect with great views, all capped by a 360-degree panoramic view of Mt. Diablo and surrounding communities.

These two valuable park areas improve the quality of life of our citizens and promote health and wellness. Parks are also used to protect our natural resources and are important areas for wildlife and habitat.

Over the years, trails, picnics and playgrounds have been built with a lot of volunteers and fundraising. The OPR Foundation has provided a vehicle for citizens to purchase the preserve of open space. Take a few hours off the weekend or some evening after work and enjoy a getaway in your own community.
