The Central Reservations Unit ( CRU) is powered by the City of Oakland’s Parks , Recreation & Youth Development Department (OPRYD). With an emphasis on Oakland’s youth, OPRYD and its partners provide best in class, relevant and equitable programs and services, while meeting the specific needs of people and communities both at the neighborhood level and regionally throughout the City of Oakland. As a part of this amazing department, the central reservations unit  is committed to creating an inclusive environment and culture that helps us better serve our diverse community, drive our innovative nature, and improve the city that we live and work in. At the heart of the central reservations unit is our desire to bring people together and experience the very best Oakland has to offer in event services and venues. Across the city we work with organizations like Friend of Oakland Parks & Recreation and other groups to fundraise and host annual community events, and provide the highest level of customer service to our community, while bringing awareness to our programs, classes and events.
