Oakland favorites with Kids Love Oakland author

What does a lifelong Oaklander love to share with her children? Kamaria shared three of her go-to favorite places in Oakland.

Fentons Creamery on Piedmont Ave.

Fentons is a great place to enjoy ice cream with the kids. [Editor’s note: For most bang for your buck with children, order a deconstructed kids banana split. Trust me.]

Morcom Rose Garden off of Grand Ave.

We like visiting the rose garden together. We can walk along the acres and acres of paths, climb the stairways, and stare at the fountains for a long time. It always smells and looks magical at all times of the year. [20 more wonderful places to play outside with toddlers]

Riding bikes near Fairyland

When the cars were limited, we had lots of fun riding our bikes through the Bellevue Parking trail near Fairyland.
