"Local Places Tell Big Stories: A Walking Tour of Sacramento's Central Oak Park," by Dr. Robin Datel, Department of Geography at California State University, Sacramento (CSUS).
On Thursday, October 21, 2010, CSH and CSUS unveiled a new self-guided walking tour of Central Oak Park. The Central Oak Park Walking Tour brochure highlights the community's architectural and historical significance. The evening included an address by the brochure's author, Dr. Robin Datel, a professor in CSUS' Geography Department. The lecture highlights the development of an early suburb with its own Main Street ("smart growth" long before the label existed); racial transitions; the civil rights movement; cycles of investment and disinvestment; nurturing of the arts; redevelopment; and neighborhood activism. One hundred and sixty-five people attended the lecture, held at the historic Guild Theater in Oak Park.
