Neighborhood


Redwood Heights

Redwood Heights is a mostly middle-class, integrated residential neighborhood in the hills of Oakland, California. It is centered on Redwood Road, which was once a logging road. Currently, Redwood Road is the designation for 35th Avenue starting about a mile or so north of MacArthur Boulevard between Victor Avenue and the Warren Freeway (State Route 13). It includes Redwood Heights Elementary School and a recreation center that doubles as an after-school daycare. The homes in Redwood Heights date mainly from the 1920s-1950s and vary greatly in style, from craftsman to "storybook" to ranch; the first development in the area was Avenue Terrace. There is a large rock/stone "obelisk" on the corner of 35th Ave and Victor that says "Avenue Terrace" and may have once been a marker for the development. There is also an Avenue Terrace park, which is located elsewhere in the neighborhood. Redwood Heights has the important distinction of being one of Oakland's most ethnically diverse neighborhoods with a mostly middle class population. With over 24,500 residents the Redwood Heights Neighborhood Association is one of Oakland's oldest neighborhood associations.
Popular with young families and stable, long-term property owners, Oakland's scenic neighborhood of Redwood Heights brings together the best aspects of a suburban bedroom community with the convenience and variety of a major metropolitan area.

Redwood Heights emanates a strong sense of community and family.

Redwood Heights takes its name from a former logging road that winds into the Oakland Hills. Homes range in style and include Tudor, Craftsman, and French Normandy, with some homes built in the 1920s. The Redwood Heights Neighborhood Association is dedicated to preserving a sense of community through events such as block parties and barbecues. The Redwood Heights Recreation Center is used by locals of all ages for weekend gatherings and classes including dance, cooking, and karate. Peralta Creek's 9 acres of creekside have been designated as wildlife corridor. A neighborhood nonprofit Native Environment Watershed Transformation (NEWT) orchestrated the Peralta Creek restoration and leads creek field trips for local school groups. Redwood Regional Park offers nearly 40 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails through 1,380 acres of redwood, evergreen, and chaparral forests and open space.
