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. Program for the dedication of the Dimond Recreation Center; orange paper, mimeographed, with white insert. Lists donors to the project; participants in the dedication; and mentions a diving exhibition in the pool.
