Rooftop Garden in Oakland?

Oakland’s Kaiser Rooftop Garden is one of the most tranquil areas of Oakland and a great place to sit and reflect. Not only to find some respite, but admire the reflections of the variety of plant species, adjacent buildings, and wildlife. A cafe complements the pond but the real reason for your visit is to escape the hustle and bustle of down below.

Getting to Oakland's Kaiser Rooftop Garden

The garden is open daily from 9-5 and is free to the public.

I highly recommend getting here now before anymore high rises take a piece of the sunlight. Located at 300 Lakeside Drive, find the staircase in the parking structure and walk up 5 flights or take the elevator.
