A local running and walking site great for first dates and casual coffee dates with friends. There is a bird sanctuary, a rowing club, outdoor amphitheatre overlooking the lake, bathrooms, water fountains, a restaurant, and more. Great people watching!

A (mostly) beautiful 3+ mile flat loop with plenty to keep you visually entertained along the way. A variety of things happening along the way.

Beautiful public space... lovely to see people out and about ... the walk offers a panoramic view of Oakland's cityscape ...

Very easy and family friendly hike (more a walk than a hike though). Not to much shade so I do not recommend doing it in the middle of a hot sunny day! :) however always great to go all around the lake :)
