Oakley was incorporated in 1999 and is the most recently incorporated city in Contra Costa County. Located 56 miles northeast of San Francisco, its neighboring cities is Antioch on the west, the City of Brentwood on the south, and Bethel Island on the east. Its northern boundary is formed by the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and Mt. Diablo dominates its southwestern skyline.
This is a town where the old world meets the new. Remnants of farmlands and vineyards are lined with new tract neighborhoods that boast scenic views of the landscape, Mt. Diablo, or the delta. Its rustic small-town ambiance is home to many family- and pet-friendly neighborhoods. Its affordability attracts many young families or those who are just starting.
The city holds numerous events that constantly bring the community together. From free movie nights in the plaza under the starry summer nights, annual Cityhood celebration, to Kids’ Fishing Derby, it never runs out of fun activities for the young and young-at-heart.
