Parks Make Life Better!

About Us

Mission Oaks developed and maintains 11 parks, totalling 88.75 acres.  Six school parks were originally developed and maintained by the park district; however, two of those (Billy Mitchell and Starr King) were given back to the San Juan Unified School District.   The remaining four school parks (Greer, Del Paso Manor, Cowan and Sierra Oaks), which amount to about 14 acres, continue to be maintained by Mission Oaks.  In addition, the District maintains the County-owned Hazelwood Greens, a stormwater detention facility of about 2 acres.  All totaled, the District provides a bit over 105 acres of parkland for the community’s enjoyment. Three of these facilities, Gibbons, Mission North, and Swanston, are community parks while the others serve as neighborhood parks.  Located in the northeast corner of the district and within the Gibbons Park is the District’s larger community center.  The District office is located on Mission Avenue within Mission North Park.  The newest district development, completed in 2008, is the Swanston Community Center at Swanston Park in the southwest corner of the district.
