3 Favorite Neighborhood Hangouts

It's A Grind Coffee House

As a newer business in the neighborhood this great hangout cafe offers WiFi and specialty coffee house concept established in 1994 to provide high-quality gourmet coffee, espresso beverages, better-for-you healthy cold drinks, a range of home-baked foods in a comfortable, and a community-focused neighborhood environment. The coffee houses are independent, well connected and free-spirited. The environment invites guests to come as they are and relax while enjoying premium coffee. The product range offers hand-crafted espresso-based beverages, smoothies and iced blended beverages you can only get at It’s A Grind.

Old Weng Ping Village

This long-standing (est. 1983) Thai food haven has recently undergone a menu update while maintaining its home-style dishes. It's a unique set up and sanctuary-like feel that makes a great date night stop or family night out. When this restaurant was established it was created as a place to promote the community and provide a place to eat filling handmade meals. This has been the worst-kept local secret because it is so good you have to tell your friends about it! 

Lena's Soul Food Restaurant

Voted #1 Black-Owned restaurant in Oakland, say no more...but I will! With a laid-back vibe and a hearty choice of traditional soul food, cajun, & Southern favorites this has become a local favorite. Everything I have ever ordered at Lena's has been delicious, satisfying, and made with quality. They offer eat-in, pick-up, to-go, and catering options.


Parks & Hiking Nearby

Greenman Field - The Oakland A’s built this ball field in the shadows of McAfee Coliseum. It is home to the Oakland Babe Ruth League and past host to the national Babe Ruth World Series and regional playoffs. The field has also seen the likes of Major League ballplayers Rickey Henderson, Dave Stewart, and Bip Roberts, who all played on its diamond. “This is a place where children’s dreams are born and nourished,” said City Councilmember Desley Brooks (Eastmont-Seminary).

Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline - This 749-acre regional park has much to do! Hiking, birdwatching, picnicking, fishing, boat launch, Tidewater Boating Center. Formerly known as San Leandro Bay Regional Shoreline, this shoreline park was renamed in 1992 by a unanimous vote of the Park District Board of Directors in honor of the late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

King Estates Green Space - King Estate Open Space Park was established so that all residents of Oakland could enjoy the natural beauty, native habitat, and wonderful views. Fire roads were cut into the park decades ago and serve as a trail system. The old Crest roadbed serves as an all-weather trail. Dogs are permitted off-leash, under strict voice control. Please be aware that this park is used by many visitors who are there to enjoy the natural beauty and may not want to interact with your pets. 

Leona Canyon Regional Open Space Preserve - A pristine wooded canyon is protected in this 290-acre parkland near Merritt College in Oakland. Restoration is in progress along Rifle Range Creek along Leona Trail to reduce erosion and protect the riparian ecosystem. The park is an ideal place for hiking, running, biking, dog walking, and similar activities.

Leona Heights Park - A small park just south of Merritt College in Oakland. The deep canyon is heavily wooded with oaks and is remarkably well-isolated from the surrounding suburbs. It’s mainly used by locals out for a pleasant short walk.

Knowland ParkThe largest and wildest public park, owned by the City of Oakland. Many people know the lower (western side) of Knowland Park from their visits to the Oakland Zoo. In recent years, the zoo has been expanding, and the Save Knowland Park group was formed to help protect the park from further expansions into undisturbed areas that are home to many species of wildlife and precious plant communities, such as rare Maritime Chaparral and oak woodlands, that are beautiful and enjoyed by the public for no charge.
