Independent Living: Enjoy peaceful lakeside living, close to urban delights
Overlooking beautiful Lake Merritt near downtown Oakland, Lake Park is a perfect home base for metropolitan Bay Area living. Our quiet Oakland independent living community is a short walk from the lake shore and its popular walking path. Lake Park is also a short distance from San Francisco and Berkeley.
What’s your mood? Whether you feel like exploring one of the surrounding cities, curling up with a book in our spacious lobby, hiking in one of the many nearby natural parks, or enjoying the company of friends over tea, Lake Park provides plenty of stress-free adventure.
Independent Living Choices for your lifestyle.
Discover the freedom of maintenance-free living at Lake Park. Floor plans for our Independent Living apartments range from studios, roomy alcoves, one bedroom with one or two baths, to spacious two-bedrooms. And many residences offer stunning views of Lake Merritt or the downtown Oakland area. We are happy to help you choose the option that suits your lifestyle, and pets are welcome too.
Life here is a breeze.
Lake Park provides a wealth of services that gives residents the freedom to follow their own pursuits without the care and worry of maintaining a house in retirement. We also offer weekly housekeeping and linen services. Making the transition here is easy because we provide up to 40 hours of complimentary move-in assistance by a trusted relocation specialist.
Enjoy a fresh take on dining.
When you don’t want to cook in your apartment, you can enjoy chef-prepared cuisine in the dining room.

Meal plan options include a Premier Dinner Menu with cuisine and wine selections comparable to the area’s finest restaurants.
