Knowland Park is a City of Oakland Park, and home to the Oakland Zoo. In recent years, the zoo has been expanding, and the Save Knowland Park group was formed to help protect the park from further expansions. Ironically, some of the zoo expansion is for a "native species" exhibit, created at the expense of the habitat of existing native species.
Besides the lower part of the park where the zoo is, the rest of the western portion is natural and undeveloped. There are fire roads and a cell phone tower/station, but no other infrastructure.
