Tomas Melero-Smith Park, Oakland, California 2

Tomas Melero-Smith Park is a public park in Oakland, California.  The park was created as a 'life legacy' in memory of Tomas John Melero-Smith (1988 - 2007) by his "family, friends, community, local organizations, City Councilmember Desley Brooks, Kaboom, and Crystler joined forces to creat a park in the name of Tomas here in East Oakland (65th Avenue). The park which stood before and empty lot on 65th avenue is now a safe heaven where children and youth in the community can play and enjoy the newly beautiful Tomas Melero Smith Peace Park in Unity. A month long planning process was completed with the building of the park on February 7, 2008 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with over 300 volunteers to make this park possible. Tomas was about giving back to the community starting at a young age where youth from all parts of Oakland looked up to him as a role model and leader. His legacy as community leader will continue thru this park and many more projects to come in his memory." 1
