Attractive Homes, Friendly Neighbors & Great Schools – Welcome to Glenview

Family-friendly, laid-back and charming, the Oakland neighborhood of Glenview has a small town feel, with its local businesses, tree-lined streets, and neighbors who wave as they walk by. A more affordable alternative to Rockridge or Temescal, & with a little more breathing room, Glenview is a comfortable and established neighborhood in the heart of Oakland. I love the feel of this neighborhood. Its location is perfect for a convenient commute to San Francisco, and it’s a short drive to the hiking trails in Redwood Regional Park and Joaquin Miller Park located just north in the Oakland hills.

Developed in the 1920s and 30s, the neighborhood of Glenview flanks popular Park Blvd, north of I-580, east of Trestle Glen and Crocker Highlands, and just south of the hills of Piedmont and Oakmore. Greenery enthusiasts, parents, and dog owners alike will appreciate the beauty of Dimond Canyon Park, the lower portion running along the east edge of the neighborhood, providing a relaxing walking trail along Sausal Creek and the amenities of the Dimond Recreation Center.

I walk my dogs in this part of Glenview almost every night after work because it is quiet, safe, and so accessible. The upper, west side offers more hilly, windy streets, and typically larger, slightly more expensive homes.

Everything You Need, Right on Park Blvd

On Park Blvd, the main thoroughfare that runs north and south from I-580 to Highway 13, you’ll come across the quaint business area that hosts a variety of eateries and small shops.

Along this stretch of Park Blvd. you will also find a laundry mat, locksmith, beauty and nail salons, flower shop, karate and dance studio, a cat clinic, postal store, cobbler, and Radioshack.
