OAKLAND’s BEST ●Attractions

Morcom Rose Garden
  700 Jean St./Grand Ave.; Lake Merritt area.  Free.  Not far from Lake Merritt, this peaceful garden is designed in traditional Florentine style with terraces and a classic reflecting pool.  Sections are devoted to pastel roses and antique roses, and a children’s garden features miniature roses.  A wedding site designed with a color scheme of white, beige, and pink is reputed to bring good luck.  Bloom is best June through October, and benches throughout invite picnicking.
