One of a series of color transparencies mounted in cardboard holders that Elbert Nickell took as a member of a local camera club showing the construction of the Dimond Recreation Center in 1959. G.Weininger, 4/2002, from DeWitt Jones, Oakland Parks and Playgrounds, 1935): Dimond Park is located in the canyon of Sausal Creek. The 12 acres were purchased in 1917 for $24,000 from the estate of Hugh Dimond, who had created its little building in 1877 as a study, using adobe bricks from the original Peralta home, the first substantial house in Oakland.
