Help Bring the Oaks Back to Oakridge
When the legendary actress Barbara Stanwyck planted the majestic
Oak tree in the circular planter of her Marwyck Ranch hilltop
driveway in 1937, she could never have imagined the barren space
that exists there today. Drought and disease have destroyed not
only that magnificent Oak but several others original to the
property located at the rear of the house which overlooked the
Thoroughbred horse breeding barns, pastures and paddocks. The
trees, which created a welcoming canopy, both cooled and shaded
the residence that is now named the Oakridge Estate, LA city
Historic-Cultural Monument #484.
Bring the Oaks Back to Oakridge!
Why Donate to Oakridge?
With construction of the Oakridge Estate
Park underway, Friends is excited to launch our First Fundraising
Campaign. The goal is to replace the three significant oak trees
original to the front and rear of the residence with three
substantial California live oaks. Plans also call for an
irrigation system and replanting shrubbery and groundcover
surrounding the home. Replacing the peaceful shade trees and
“adding green” to the Oakridge grounds will create a more
aesthetically appealing and welcoming venue for major fundraising
events to be hosted by Friends of Oakridge.

A New Park in Northridge
Oakridge Estate Park construction started in November 2017. The contractor for the park project is digging and moving dirt! Please follow along with us as we document the progress of the new, passive recreation park via images and information. The entrance and parking area is graded with walking trails to soon be added. Landscaping will follow. Please watch with us as the new park appears!
