Oakmont has four major activity centers. The East Rec Center and the West Rec Center have tennis courts (four each), year round heated pools and spas. The Berger Center is our largest auditorium. There are kitchen facilities for food service at these facilities. The Central Activity Center is our brand new building with a pool and spa and houses a fitness center and other dedicated spaces.
The pool at the East is used by morning lane swimmers year round and is popular with sunbathers in the afternoon. There is also a billiard room accessed through the pool area. The upstairs room at the East Rec is a great setting for banquets and parties, and is the location for Movies at Oakmont and the Sunday Symposium. It is a favorite location for private parties.
The West Rec Center pool is used for water aerobic exercise classes six mornings a week. The newly remodeled exercise studio hosts classes in tap, Zumba, yoga, line dancing and other exercises. The floating hardwood floor is designed with exercise in mind. The tennis courts were newly resurfaced as of Spring 2010. Upstairs, the West Rec Center has a kitchen for food service and is the site for table tennis and the Visual Aids group, among other meetings and forums. Three newly refurbished Bocce ball courts are located in the West Rec area along with a picnic facility available for private parties.
The Berger Center is our largest auditorium which is used for our monthly classical Concerts at Oakmont and many of the Life Long Learning classes with professors from Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College providing programs. The Rotary Club, Kiwanis and SIRS organizations hold special events and luncheon meetings here.
The jewel of our activities centers is the new Central Activities Center. The building includes an honor-system library, a Computer Learning Center, an Arts and Crafts room, where art seminars and live model classes are held, and a card and game room. The Fitness Center has state-of-the-art equipment, an available trainer and a separate weight room area.
The Central Pool and spa is available for all Oakmont residents, with children allowed swimming privileges during posted hours from Easter weekend to Thanksgiving. The Central Pool is convenient to Oakmont Gardens. Nearby we have a year-round lawn bowling area where club members play daily. Here you'll also find a putting green, as well as facilities for petanque, horseshoes, and shuffleboard. The Central Pool is the only pool that is available for children to swim. There are certain hours designated for children.
