The Cohousing Lifestyle

Oak Creek Commons is a Multi-generational Intentional Community

We are located in Paso Robles (pop. 29,000) on the central coast of California, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. A 30 minute drive south gets us to San Luis Obispo and a 35 minute drive gets us to the Pacific Ocean.

We intentionally designed our cohousing neighborhood to foster community while preserving privacy and independence. The physical layout of the neighborhood makes it easy to know everyone in our 36-household community.

We share in planned & spontaneous social activities, community meals, child-care — as well as, self-managing & maintaining our property. We are known for helping our fellow neighbors when in need.

A Caring & Safe Neighborhood for All

Oak Creek Commons consists of 31 condominiums and 5 single-family homes situated on over 14 acres — with more than 10-acres of undeveloped oak woodlands.

Living here has the feeling of a small village where children safely play and grown-ups know and care about each other. Our dogs, cats, & chickens love it here, too

The layout of our community offers a more friendly and safe environment for kids & adults. We have multiple play spaces and places to gather, front porches facing the walkway, and cars parked away from homes.
