Event Details

Downtown Oakland is undergoing a renaissance (let’s not call it gentrification, just to be nice). Local residents and visitors can glimpse both today’s happening scene and landmarks from Oakland’s past during the 2011 Oakland Tours season.

There are eight different tours, each led by a volunteer guide and beginning at 10 a.m. from various starting locations depending on the itinerary.

[ RSVP — Reservations are recommended by leaving a message on the Tours’ 24-hour hotline at (510) 238-3234 or via email to aallen@oaklandnet.com. ]

Today’s Tour: Uptown to the Lake

Nestled among the many new restaurants and clubs, Oakland’s vibrant art deco-era landmarks, including the Fox Oakland Theater, the Paramount Theatre and the jazzy blue and silver Floral Depot Building, are the focus of this tour. The tour also features the Kaiser Center’s “secret” rooftop garden overlooking Lake Merritt. The tour starts in front of the Paramount Theatre at 2025 Broadway.

This tour (Number 3) will be offered again on July 13, August 13, September 7 and October 8.
