A real jem in the middle of Oakland. A great place to walk, jog, push the stroller or have a picnic on the lawn.. There is a fantastic farmers market on the East end of the lake each Saturday. A large variety of birds winter there and bird watching is also good the rest of the year. The Lake Merritt Wildlife Refuge and Rotary Nature Center is great for children and there is a playground right next door. Across from that is the Lakeside Park Demonstration Garden. In the spring and summer the flowers are wonderful. Sundays in July, from 1-3,there are band concerts on the bandstand. We live close enough to walk there at least once a month to enjoy the beauty of the lake and park.
