Walk around Lake Merritt on the paved jogging path. Take a walk. The 3.4 mile multi-use path rings the lake is popular among joggers
The lake near my house. Always a pleasant easy stroll
Very easy but nice walk on a mostly flat trail around a beautiful lake in the center of Oakland. Always great for people watching.
Good city walk. Use to work close by with time on my hands so i did it more than a few times. Not as good in the middle of the summer when the lake can have a bit of a smell to it.
Nice urban pleasant walk. It's scenic and there are lots of great restaurants and pit stops for kids.
Beautiful site, lots of people. Not great for off leash unless in a side field.
