As the center point of Oakland, Lake Merritt is not only a lake in a city, but a major entertainment destination both for locals and visitors alike. Surrounded by parks, golf courses and child-friendly areas, not to mention living spaces, the lake is great for a relaxing afternoon, a water cruise or for a picnic in a nearby park.

It is worth your time to go down to the lake and do something for fun or just have a really relaxing leisure afternoon.
