One of Oakland's major landmarks is Lake Merritt.  Located in the heart of Oakland, it is the center of many water-oriented activities for area residents.  It has a boating complex where sailboats, canoes, and rowboats can be rented, and classes in boating are offered as well.  On the lakeside, the Rotary Nature Center presents visiting families with information about local birds and animals.  Right offshore are artificial islands that were created as a safe resting and refuge place for visiting and resident birds.

For those who prefer jogging, the lake has trails all along its entire rim-3.1 miles in total. Grassy retreats offer opportunities for family picnics. Immediately adjacent to the lake is the highly popular Grand Lake Farmers Market, which is held each Saturday.  Additionally, one of the most popular, and oldest attraction around Lake MerrittChildren's Fairyland It was built in the 1950's with the concept of attracting children to a pleasant family park with a theme of children's fairy tales. There are various representations of those tales in the theater and puppet presentations, on the carousel, and on the trolley that goes through the park.  This trolley passes structures that represent tales from "The Old Woman Who Lived In a Shoe", Alice in Wonderland, Captain Hook's Pirate Ship, and much, much more. 

For those interested in living around the lake, there is an excellent selection of gracious older homes and apartments around the edge of the lake that allows the residents to enjoy these scenic and ever-changing views. Nearby Lakeshore and Grand Lake shops and stores add more to the neighborhood ambiance for those who like to walk just a bit to shop, as does the growing Uptown area just west of the lake.
