Sabrina Landreth has been appointed as the East Bay Regional Park District’s (EBRPD) new general manager, becoming the first female and 10th GM in the Park’s 87-year history.

Landreth, a fifth generation East Bay native, UC Berkeley alum and former Oakland City Administrator from 2015- 2020, will succeed Robert Doyle, who recently retired following a 47-year career with the district.

Landreth will begin her new position on March 15.

“I am honored to be appointed by the Board as the District’s next General Manager,” Landreth said in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to build upon the great work the District does to improve the quality of life for our East Bay community, while adhering to its social and environmental responsibilities.”

With the City of Oakland, Landreth is credited “with strong fiscal management and developing a capital improvement program that included community equity goals and has become a model program for local governments around the country,” according to EBRPD. She also worked as deputy city administrator, budget director and legislative analyst to the finance committee for Oakland. Previously, she served as city manager of Emeryville and as staff in the California State Assembly.

Landreth has a master’s degree in public policy from U.C. Berkeley and a B.S. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

 “Our Board is thrilled to have Sabrina join our organization,” said Dee Rosario, President of Park District Board of Directors. “She has all the right elements of urban public sector leadership experience and especially understands the diversity of the East Bay communities we serve.”
