Things to Do in Piedmont

View Map

The nearby California College of Arts and Crafts provides an ever freshening stream of youth into what some describe as a geriatric neighborhood, but just like the rest of our city, if it wasn't diverse it wouldn't be Oakland. People from all over Oakland take a stroll down the Avenue for shopping or dining or just because Piedmont has so many interesting things to look at. And, despite the encroachment of chain establishments that can't seem to gain a foothold in other neighborhoods (and believe me they didn't build here without a serious fight), Peidmont retains its natural character. Seriously, Piedmont is still the kind of area where people greet each other by name and let their kids run around the parks, where you're just as likely to see an old friend as you are to make new ones.
