Situated in the Oakland foothills, Oakmore is a small residential neighborhood of mostly single-family homes and traditionally styled dwellings dating back to the 1920s and ‘30s. Located east of Park Boulevard and north of Dimond Park this neighborhood was built in the 1920s and 1930s for people who worked in San Francisco and took the Key Route to work. The Key System was a primary user of the Leimert Bridge, which connects Oakmore to Park Boulevard. Meandering streets, small pockets of community maintained trees and flowers, great weather and little "leave a book, take a book" libraries are some of the things that make Oakmore a great place to live. The small but vibrant business center of Oakmore is anchored by Rocky's market, a favorite specialty market serving the neighborhood for decades. Rocky's has fresh fish from Monterey Bay on Wednesdays, food trucks in the parking lot a few nights a week and a community newsletter.
The Oakmore Homes Association is the oldest homeowner’s association in Oakland. Established by Walter H. Leimert in 1926, the Association works with the City of Oakland to maintain the unique beauty of Oakmore. They also sponsor a neighborhood Fourth of July celebration, annual Neighborhood Night Out gatherings, common area clean-ups and beautification and act as a liason for zoning and planning issues.

In the neighboring Glenview District, most of the businesses are mom-and-pop shops and include a market, salons, locksmith, shoe repair (very quaint!), fitness center and dry cleaners. Highly rated restaurants such as Bellanico, Marzano and Blackberry Bistro add some gourmet flair to the Park Boulevard business district.
This quiet, residential stretch at the base of the Oakland Hills has a very diverse and refreshingly unpretentious vibe, with almost zero craft cocktail bars or bicycle-powered coffee machines. Part of the 94-acre Dimond Canyon bookends this immigrant community, giving the area a pleasant urban-nature balance. Back in the early 1900s, Dimond was known as Little Germany, thanks to the number of Germans who lived here and beer halls. Though that population has dwindled, an annual Oaktoberfest continues till this day. The Dimond District’s layered history includes timber groves and fruit orchards. But today you’ll find taquerias, mural art and natural grocer Farmer Joe's. The commercial district is in Lower Dimond—home to local bakery favorite, La Farine, a post office, banks, ethnic markets, butcher, Sprint store, pizzerias and more.
Montclair (also known as the Montclair District or Montclair Village) is a neighborhood in Oakland located along the western slope of the Oakland hills from a valley formed by the Hayward Fault to the upper ridge of the hills. The center of the neighborhood is a compact shopping district known as Montclair Village which is located next to Highway 13 between Park Blvd. and Thornhill Drive. Home of a Sunday Farmer's Market, Montclair Village is a mecca for locals to dine, shop and play.
