Oakland’s lovely hillside neighborhoods and lively shopping districts draw residents to the East Bay’s largest city - an exciting, vibrant, urban community. Idora Park is home to what many called the finest amusement park in the area in the early 1900’s. In order to promote the use of the railway to Oakland, the Realty Syndicate constructed Idora Park. Located on the blocks bounded by Telegraph Avenue, Shattuck Avenue, 56th and 58th streets, Idora Park began as a free outdoor picnic area and eventually became a walled-in amusement park. Attractions included a merry-go-round, Ferris wheel, miniature auto race course, skating rink, roller coaster, zoo, opera house, ballpark and more. When the park closed, a charming neighborhood of storybook houses with underground utilities and vintage lamp posts was built in its place. Bordered by Rockridge and Temescal, Idora Park sits within the desirable Bushrod neighborhood. Temescal is a bustling district along Telegraph Avenue with the feel of an urban village; Rockridge is grounded by College Avenue and boasts interesting shops and top-rated restaurants. There are several commute options nearby including BART, buses and casual carpools.
