Oak Creek Commons is a cohousing community dedicated to creating a sense of community through joint activities and meals. Our homes are on 4.4 acres, with adjoining 10 acres of California oak woodlands. We have thriving gardens and an orchard. Community members built a children’s play structure and contributed to building a workshop. We have common meals two days a week, as well as Saturday-morning bagels and TGIF parties. In addition to enjoying pool and spa, we have big meals for Thanksgiving and solstice and have a (more or less!) fabulous 4th of July parade. Many members are highly active in local sustainability and other green efforts, and some are politically active locally. We welcome having more children in the community. Paso Robles, the site of Oak Creek Commons, is a charming and growing town of 29,000 in the heart of the Central Coast wine country (as in the movie “Sideways”). We have bright clear sunny days most of the year. We are midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and 30 minutes from Pacific beaches on the coast. There are great bicycling and hiking opportunities nearby, as well as a large amateur arts community, good musical opportunities, and many interesting activities year-round, such as antique car shows, wine and olive festivals, a country fair, etc. Our community is surrounded by a countryside of gorgeous rolling hills with vineyards, oaks, wild grasses, and a springtime wildflower heaven nearby. We are 27 miles from the “big city” of San Luis Obispo, a charming college town (California Polytechnic) with fun shops and bistros.
