Neighborhood


Dimond - Oakland


The intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Fruitvale Avenue is the heart of Oakland's Dimond neighborhood, one of the city's most up-and-coming enclaves. This walkable neighborhood boasts several major banks, two major grocery stores, a pharmacy, and various mom-and-pop businesses.

Families appreciate a branch of the Oakland Public Library, as well as Dimond Park and Dimond Recreation Center on Fruitvale Avenue. The Dimond Improvement Association (DIA) is committed to making this tight-knit neighborhood “a vital, safe and beautiful place” for its residents. They plan regular community events -- including the annual Oaktober festival.


Interstate 580 forms the neighborhood's southern border, a convenient perk for commuters. Those who prefer public transportation can use AC Transit's NL bus line, which runs down MacArthur Boulevard and offers transbay service to downtown San Francisco on both weekdays and weekends.
