Oakmore, Glenview, Dimond & Laurel

The Dimond, Oakmore and Glenview neighborhoods comprise an area running perpendicular to MacArthur Boulevard and the Warren freeway, between Park Boulevard and Lincoln Avenue, much of it canyon.

At the upper eastern end of the canyon, logging and lumber operations flourished from 1851 to 1860, effectively clearing the Oakland Hills of trees. Today large upscale homes line curving streets in a reforested area. Many Tudor, Mediterranean, and Spanish Colonial styles are found here. Quiet and secluded Oakmore is just minutes to Montclair or Park Avenue Glenview shopsCraftsman bungalows, Prairie style homes, and more modest bungalows line the hillside down into the Glenview shopping district of Park Blvd. with restaurants, locally owned stores, and a bustling Saturday Farmers’ Market.

In the early years, German immigrants settled along the Dimond and lower Glenview area. Today it is home to a diverse mix of people. The streets are quiet and California bungalows dominate. Sausal Creek runs through Dimond Park, a recreational oasis with tennis courts, a swimming pool, running trails, a picnic area and a tot playground. The Oakland Public library has a branch here too, offering popular children’s programs.
The Dimond neighborhood shopping district is enjoying a renaissance. Locals call it Oakland’s “Gourmet Ghetto,” after the famed North Berkeley gourmet food haven. Among the draws are Farmer John’s for produce, La Farine French bakery, the Food Mill, known for its organic bulk food, and Claws and Paws, a natural pet food store and doggy bath house. Home to young and old, hip and more conservative, the Dimond sparkles with a vibrant energy all its own.

The Laurel District clings to the eastern ridge of the Oakland Hills in a pocket neighborhood that is intersected by MacArthur Boulevard. The quiet, tree-lined streets that span the hillside, the California bungalows, and active neighborhood associations distinguish this cozy and friendly area.

Indeed, many young families choose this neighborhood for their first homes. When asked what makes this neighborhood special, a young mother who calls the Laurel home, said, “Living here, I have everything money can’t buy—wonderful neighbors, a feeling of safety, and a sense of shared commitment to the neighborhood.”
The Laurel shopping district features a variety of stores, restaurants and services—supplying just about everything you could want. Easy access to the 13 and 580 freeways offers an easy commute for those working in many parts of the Bay Area.
