Three waterways define the city of Oakland. There's the San Francisco Bay, of course, the Oakland Estuary, and Lake Merritt. The lake, while often overlooked in favor of its larger, saltier neighbors, is just as much of a center for recreation, a source of natural beauty, and a focal point for residents.

Lake Merritt in Oakland is more than just a body of water, it's the term for a large and distinct section of the downtown and near-downtown areas. Strictly speaking, it would include the lakefront areas in the neighborhoods of Lakeside, Merritt, Cleveland Heights and Adams Point, along with the Adams Point recreational and entertainment center, the Laney College Campus and a few addresses in Lakeshore and Grand Lake. This area has a number of highly desirable properties, as well as some of Oakland's most important civic resources. Downtown is just a few blocks away from the lake, providing all of the best shopping and entertainment options the city has to offer.
In terms of getting to the area, the BART system provides direct service to the southern tip of the lake via the Lake Merritt Station on Oak between 8th and 9th Streets. This connects the neighborhood to the airports as well as downtown San Francisco. The freeway is just two blocks further south, putting residents just minutes away from the Bay Bridge.
The lake itself has boating, nature reserves, picnic areas, walking trails, public art, a botanic garden, a children's' entertainment park and even a croquet club. It's a place where everyone in the city can find something to do. Office workers on lunch breaks, families on weekend outings and residents getting daily exercise — it's always a mixed crowd. Overall, people love living in this area for the access to recreation, the beautiful views and the convenience of the downtown addresses.
