Lake Merritt with its beautiful necklace of lights is known throughout the region as a natural and cultural destination. There is more to Lake Merritt than a beautiful body of water. Lake Merritt residents can easily access a few of the area’s popular public parks. Nearby Lakeside Park includes Children’s Fairyland, a storybook theme park that has delighted generations of kids and even served as a model for Disneyland Park. The three-mile pathway around the lake hosts hundreds of runners and walkers each day.
If you enjoy exploring a vast array of plant life, the Gardens at Lake Merritt are a must-see. Stroll through the peaceful Bonsai and Japanese Gardens, or transport yourself to a tropical paradise in the Palm Garden.
Just south of the Gardens is where you will find the Lake Merritt Boating Center, which offers sailing classes, as well as rents kayaks canoes, and sailboats. If you have your own boat or kayak, you can use it on Lake Merritt for a small fee.
Lake Merritt has its own BART station at Oak and 8th Streets, making it a great neighborhood for commuters. Residents can ride to the Financial District in less than 30 minutes. Additionally, the neighborhood’s close proximity to Interstate 580 makes it easy to travel to the Oakland Zoo, or up to the Golden Gate Fields in Northwest Berkeley.
The Oakland Museum is a wonderful destination specializing in California Art and History with year-round special exhibits you'll find nowhere else. Laney Community College is also nearby at 9th and Fallon. Just beyond is Oakland's historic Chinatown neighborhood, the second largest working Chinatown in the U.S. after San Francisco. The dining possiblities there are just endless.
The landmark Grand Lake Theater movie palace has been delighting audiences since 1926! Opposite the theater, the Saturday Farmer's Market attracts shoppers of organic produce from miles around. Grand Avenue offers a variety of dining options. Some of the local favorites include the New American sensation Sidebar, Coach Sushi, a popular Japanese restaurant known for its bottomless sake, and Grandeur, a Midtown Oakland Staple for delicious Vegan Cuisine.
