    Get away from it all at Lakeside Park
    If you want a place in Oakland to just sit and read, or enjoy the beauty of flowers and plants, hard to beat Lakeside Park and Garden Center. It includes a community garden, a scented garden for the blind and others interested in the smell of beauty, a banzai garden, a Japanese garden, and lots of benches tucked away along its paths. Lakeside Park includes the oldest bird sanctuary in North America, a nature center with a working beehive, a boathouse with boats for rent, a playground for young children, and areas for picnicking or throwing a frisby around.

    Love the area for real peace and calm times
    The grand stand has great music from time to time and being in the location is peaceful for picnics and almost no need to bring but something to snack on and breath.. views here are great if into flowers especially roses the gardens are great to and what a quiet place in the middle of the city to visit..
