Lake Merritt is widely considered the Crown Jewel of Oakland, especially since a $122 million renovation was completed in 2013.
The lake is surrounded by many interesting neighborhoods, each of which has its own unique flavor. Situated at the top, Grand Lake has become one of the most desired areas with its bustling commercial district, historic Grand Lake Theater and small town feel. Counterclockwise is Adams Point which consists of pre-war-style condominium buildings. Lakeside features modern condominiums high-rises. East Lake is more eclectic in terms of its residents and restaurants. And Haddon Hill is an increasingly in-demand enclave with small multi-unit buildings.
No matter which neighborhood you choose, all benefit from easy access to Lake Merritt, one of Oakland's greatest and most beautiful treasures.
