The heart of North Oakland is located just a few miles from Downtown Oakland, and is one of the Bay Area’s most culturally and ethnically diverse neighborhoods. The residential streets are lined with beautiful, detached single-family homes, with architectural styles ranging from Edwardian to Craftsman. With close proximity to highways, BART Station, and public transit lines, residents of North Oakland are never too far away from all of the excitement of San Francisco, Berkeley, and the entire Bay Area.
Bushrod Park, a 10-acre community park, is located near the center of North Oakland. A community Recreation Center was added to the park in 2000 and features a full-size gym, playground, lighted basketball and tennis courts, baseball fields, and picnic areas.The park is also home to one of Oakland’s 23 community gardens, where locals can grow their own organic fruits, herbs, and flora for a small annual fee. If you are looking for a community that truly brings its residents together, Bushrod Park is an amazing option.
Some of the best restaurants in Oakland can be found less than a mile from the North Oakland area. A short trip down to Telegraph Avenue in Temescal will provide you with a seemingly endless array of dining options, including:
