This quaint park is well worth a visit. It is a collection of old houses, some of which have remained in situ while others have been relocated here. Well tended, offering a glimpse into housing of the past

Preservation Park was my daughter’s wedding venue. It is a quaint, quiet oasis in downtown Oakland. Beautifuly restored Victorian homes, lovely gardens and paths for walking. We saw moms with strollers one afternoon.

I pass through this small park several times a week and it always lifts my spirit. It's a collection of preserved historic houses that are now used for offices for non-profit organizations. Architecture, landscaping and fountain are lovely. Quiet oasis.
