 Lake Merritt is a vibrant neighborhood located in the heart of Oakland and just east of downtown. It is widely considered one of the most unique urban spaces in the United States.  Its three-mile shoreline in the center of an exceptionally diverse city is a special place where nature and nurture migrate and mingle daily.  This tidal lagoon is home to the United States’ oldest designated wildlife refuge dating from 1870 and surrounded by a mostly flat 3.4 miles walking and running path. Following extensive re-development and renovation, it is also a popular picnicking, sailing, and rowing spot. Yoga and Tai Chi classes also gather around the Lake and even lawn bowling! Nearby is Lakeside Park which includes Children’s Fairyland, a storybook theme park that has delighted generations of kids and even served as a model for Disneyland Park.
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.

Beyond recreation and nature, you are a short stroll to the 19th Street Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, as well as bus stops and freeways, making it a great neighborhood for commuters. 

Lake Merritt is an ideal neighborhood for people who love live entertainment, movies, or a delicious meal. Take in the newest release at the famous Grand Lake Theater or enjoy the historic Paramount and Fox Theaters which host a variety of live acts including stand-up comedy shows, concerts, speakers, and performing arts. Downtown Oakland is mere blocks away as is Whole Foods and the Lakeshore Shopping district. The Farmer’s Market on Saturday provides incredible fresh produce, flowers, and treats year-round. There are also several+ Zagat-rated restaurants to delight your taste buds or gather with friends and family.  There are few neighborhoods like Lake Merritt that offer so many amenities while promoting and fostering a strong neighborhood community.
