With several bridges connecting pedestrians to the lake path, homeowners anywhere in Oakland can easily reach the city's coastal green spaces. Many homes in this lakeside neighborhood are surprisingly affordable, though there are more luxurious options as well as vintage rehabs that merit a higher price tag.

Where to Eat

With much of the area zoned for residential use, you won’t find many restaurants within Oakland’s borders. However, residents can find several local establishments just outside the neighborhood. Yassa African Restaurant is a popular choice for traditional Senegalese fare, while Norman’s Bistro offers a creative menu of American Creole dishes with a Brazilian twist.
