Love Our Lake Day - celebrate with Oakland+WOBO June 9th


Come walk, bike, and paddle Lake Merritt with Walk Oakland Bike Oakland. Join WOBO and the city of Oakland for safe, car-free fun on streets and parks around Lake Merritt on Sunday, June 9 from 11am to 4pm. A special grand opening ceremony at Lake Merritt Boulevard amphitheater and pedestrian bridge will take place at 2pm to commend and thank the residents of Oakland for approving an unprecedented bond measure (Measure DD) that made beautifying the area around the Lake possible.

Many of the streets around Lake Merritt will be closed off to traffic making them available to pedestrians and bicycles. There will be food trucks, music, and a wide variety of activities. Lake Merritt is an incomparable jewel in Oakland, and this is a great opportunity to see it sparkle!

Visit Oaklavia.org for more information.

NOTE: Volunteers are still needed. You can come volunteer for part of the time and enjoy the celebrations yourself the rest of the time. You'll get lunch, a t-shirt, and more! Plus you'll help make this great event even better.

Glad you enjoyed it! I had fun, both with the Oakland Urban Paths walk beforehand and the rest of Love Our Lake Day. I'll be posting more about the latter as time permits, hopefully soon!
