Weininger, from DeWitt Jones, Oakland Parks and Playgrounds, 1935): This estate was purchased by Oakland for $72,000 in 1912 as the result of efforts of Mayor Frank Mott. The park is now the site of the Vagabond Theatre, a large truck with a well-equipped stage, which moves around among California towns.
