Tips from locals
Lake Merritt is a great place to take a walk around the lake and get a feel for the local community. The weekends with nice weather are especially good!
The Gem of Oakland is about and hour walk all the way around. It’s one of the best places to breathe, hangout and even workout!
A healthy 3 mile walk around the perimeter. Or stay near the Grand Lake area for shopping/dining. Nice areas for picnics and people-watching too.
