*per Public Records
Developed in 1926 and built in the late 1920s and ‘30s, Oakmore Highlands was one of the earliest residential planned developments in Oakland. The residents in this neighborhood above Dimond Park once took the Key System streetcar to work in downtown Oakland and San Francisco. Homes range from large, stately Mediterranean, Spanish and Monterey Colonial homes to more contemporary mid century homes set along winding streets, many with terraced gardens and views of the bay. Oakmore is almost exclusively residential, but the Glenview, Dimond, and Montclair business districts are not far away. There is a small Oakmore "center" with a Red Boy Pizza, dry cleaners, small office building, dentist, chiropractor, and the inimitable Rocky's Market. Dimond Park Recreation Center, Dimond Canyon Park, and the city-owned Montclair Golf Course border Oakmore, providing plenty of open space. Its just a short trip to the East Bay Regional Parks including stands of giant redwoods and many popular hiking trails, the Woodminster Cascades and Amphitheatre and the Chabot Space and Science Center.
