Walking Tour: Lower Oakmore's Secret Gardens and Storybook Homes

Date: Sunday August 13, 2017
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: Rocky's Market parking lot. 1440 Leimert Blvd., Oakland


Nestled between the Glenview and Dimond neighborhoods, Oakmore was developed starting in 1926 with the completion of the Leimert Bridge. This "residential park" is filled with examples of charming storybook and period revival home styles and lovely gardens including a few "secret" ones. We'll see the recently daylighted Sausal Creek in Dimond Park, and learn about some of the builders who contributed to the area's character. Parts of the walk are moderately hilly.
