Dimond & Laurel Districts

Centered along MacArthur Boulevard you'll find the Dimond District and the adjacent Laurel District.

The Dimond is a friendly and well-organized community that has attracted many businesses to its commercial district. Residents have invested significant time and energy in improving the area's facilities. Near the library you'll find Dimond Park, a lovely wooded area which houses a recreational center offering swimming, tennis and children's activities.

The Laurel is a bright neighborhood with a vibrant and diverse population. A mini-melting pot, the people of the Laurel District are proud to be a part of this distinct section of Oakland, confirmed by all the warm greetings found at Farmer Joe's, a small local market, and in the wide range of ethnic shops and restaurants along MacArthur Boulevard.
