Where to Live

North Oakland offers a variety of 1930s Victorian, Edwardian, Craftsman, Bungalow-style row houses as well as apartment complexes, duplexes, and condos. The housing in North Oakland ranges from high-end to moderately gritty. For the artistically inclined, the Paradise Park area attracts a colorful, eclectic community of residents, primarily artists and young hipsters and students who appreciate the bicycle-friendly Berkeley vibe, but not the higher Berkeley rents. Families of all kinds will enjoy the Bushrod area with its basketball and tennis courts, soccer and football fields, and parks that welcome dogs.

Where to Eat

For fanatic foodies who prefer patronizing one-of-a-kind, locally-owned eateries, the length of San Pablo Avenue running along the west edge of Paradise Park is home to a palate-pleasing array of dining venues from high-end to hip, offering everything from vegan to comfort food. In the Bushrod area, head over to the Telegraph Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard area for a variety of down-home delis, coffee shops, and restaurants tucked in between the various Berkeley-inspired eclectic shops and pawn stores.

What You'll See

Lots of food and art. North Oakland residents love the arts and farmers markets. Longfellow is home to several farmers markets offering artisanal foods and fresh produce, including Saturday favorites Phat Beets Farmers Market and the neighboring North Oakland Farmers Market. On Tuesdays, you'll see locals heading from the Ashby BART Station to browse the organic fruits and vegetables at the Berkeley Tuesday Farmers Market. The vital art scene is apparent in the many outdoor murals sponsored by the Community Rejuvenation Project and the endless art galleries and events held throughout North Oakland

Friday Night Fun

East Bay locals have an endless variety of diverse nightlife options nearby, including dive joints on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and high-end, five-star jazz clubs just a few minutes away at the Jack London Square. Many eateries and bars offer vegan and vegetarian fares, and some even welcome dogs to share the evening socializing.

The Perfect Sunday

Take the family, including the dog, to one of North Oakland's many parks for outdoor activities. The Temescal Creek Park near Longfellow has a basketball court, playground, and a safe, fenced-in area for Fido to meet and greet fellow canines. Students and singles enjoy playing a pickup game at Bushrod Park's basketball courts, tossing a Frisbee around the huge field, weekend tennis matches, and hanging out with fellow fitness buffs.
