Temescal Icon

Temescal began as its own little village, eventually merging with Oakland. While it is now one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, it is by no means stagnant; the community is enjoying a residential and business revival.

A local art cooperative and a public pool offer an array of classes and workshops. An annual street fair displays Temescal's cultural variety and gives those new to the area a chance to meet neighborhood merchants and business owners. Temescal's residents can be found frequenting local staples such as Bakesale Betty (famous for its friend chicken sandwich) and the cute shops of Temescal Alley.

Residences range from Craftsman bungalows to modern condominiums. With its active local businesses, friendly locale and BART station, this is one area that should not be overlooked.
