Two landmarks are located on its western boundaries. The first is the Mormon Temple, which is an architectural masterpiece, and can be seen, lights glowing, from much of the Bay Area as it sits atop the hills on Lincoln Avenue. The second is the Oakland Greek Temple, also an architecturally stunning structure, and located just below the Mormon Temple.
Just a bit further down on Lincoln is the Head/Royce School, a private school which has been in the Bay area for more than 130 years, but was established at its present location in 1964 as a girls school, and then as a girls and boy's school in 1979 when it combined with nearby Royce School.
There is no question that Lincoln Avenue has the most popular attractions for Oakland residents. Besides the school and the two churches mentioned above, just moments up the hill is Joaquin Miller Park that offers jogging and hiking trails, family picnic grounds, and amazing views of the Bay area. Within the park, is the Woodminster Amphitheater, which has been attracting families for many, many years to its Broadway style musical productions that are presented during the summer months. Nearby Montclair and Rockridge neighborhoods offer many boutique shop and restaurant choices for a day or evening out.
