650 Canyon Del Rey Blvd, Del Rey Oaks, CA 93940     WEBSITE   TWITTER   FACEBOOK

Located in a canyon between Seaside and Monterey, Del Rey Oaks is affected by many of the same issues as its Monterey Peninsula neighbors—in particular water politics, which played a role in the most recent City Council election. Environmental preservation is a big deal as well. The town is home to the Frog Pond Wetland Preserve, which preserves an biologically rich ecosystem, and one of the city’s popular programs is the Oak Tree Replacement Program, which saw its first 100 vouchers for free trees snapped up in just 35 days.
