Seven Oak Trees planted in Rear Yard

         Friends of Oakridge is proud to announce that in May 2019, the rear yard planting of seven Oak Trees, two California Pepper trees, and drought tolerant shrubbery along with the installation of irrigation and decomposed granite paths was completed.  This project is the second phase of improvements made possible from more than $20,000 in donations received from our 2018 appeal to Help Bring the Oaks Back to Oakridge.  Thank you to the our individual supporters, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the Northridge West, Chatsworth and Porter Ranch Neighborhood Councils  and the friends and family of Barbara Stanwyck for making this project possible.

​   The first phase of the project was completed in June 2018 with the planting of a replacement mature California Live Oak tree in the center of the motor court. The tree was dedicated to Steve Harris, former President of Friends of Oakridge, who passed away just weeks before seeing this portion of the property returned to its former beauty.  Bordering the front of the residence,  attractive shrubbery and an irrigation system were added.

     Thank you for your continued generosity and support!

Why Donate to Oakridge?

The mission of Friends is to raise funds for the rehabilitation of the Stanwyck/Oakie house and grounds in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. Did you know there are no City public funds allocated for the renovation of the residence and the grounds immediately surrounding it? Please assist us in our efforts to bring a greatly needed destination for cultural activities and events to the San Fernando Valley.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated
