Considered the “Jewel of Oakland," Lake Merritt and neighboring Adams Point are tucked between the Uptown Oakland and Grand Lake neighborhoods.
There is more to Lake Merritt than a beautiful body of water. 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.
Adams Point is a short stroll from the 19th Street Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, making it a great neighborhood for commuters. Residents from can ride to Google Headquarters in less than 40 minutes, and to the Financial District in less than 30. 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.
Living in and around Lake Merritt is great for people who love live entertainment, dinner & a movie, or a delicious meal. Paramount Theatre is less than one mile from Adams Point, and showcases a variety of live acts including stand-up comedy shows, concerts, and performing arts. About two blocks south, you will find the historic Fox Theater, which seats up to 2,800 people and features similar shows.
After a great show (or any time of day), Grand Avenue offers a variety of dining options. Some of the local favorites include the New American sensation Sidebar, Grand Lake Kitchen, Comal Next Door, and many others. The wafting of spices greets you as you wander past Oaktown Spice Shop. Further down Grand Ave are a multitude of shops, bars, cafes, and Whole Foods is also only blocks away.
