The community of Crocker Highlands enjoys a central Oakland location nearby to public transit, freeway access, and the shopping districts of Grand Lake and Piedmont Avenue. It is adjacent to the neighborhood of Trestle Glen, which sits to the south nearer to the Grand Lake district. Both Crocker Highlands and Trestle Glen are affluent and established neighborhoods with tree-lined streets, manicured gardens and traditional examples of Tudor, Art Deco, Craftsman, and Arts & Crafts style homes. The two neighborhoods are served by the Oakland Unified School District, and are near to one of Oakland’s finest private schools: Head Royce. The college-preparatory school is K-12 and features a collaborative-educational learning environment with a Pupil/Teacher ratio of nine. The Upper School (grades 9-12) boasts a steady rate of nearly one hundred percent matriculation to four-year colleges and universities.
Trestle Glen sits on the Eastern border of Lakeshore Avenue, a shared shopping street in the Grand Lake district. From the flats of Lakeshore, the streets lead quickly up into steep rolling hills, which are classic to this portion of Oakland. The streets in Trestle Glen are designed in a curvilinear pattern—a city planning style called the “garden suburb” that was popular in the early 20th century. The neighborhood is unique in that it is both residential and walkable to shops and businesses nearby.
