Grand Lake, or the Grand Lake District, is a neighborhood of Oakland, California. The neighborhood is located near the northeast corner of Lake Merritt, where Grand and Lakeshore Avenues pass under Interstate 580. It borders Adams Point to the west, Trestle Glen to the east, and Piedmont to the north. It lies at an elevation of 52 feet (16 m).

There are two shopping areas in the Grand Lake District:

  • Grand Avenue, between Piedmont and Adams Point, the larger of the two. The Grand Lake Theater dominates the corner of Grand and Lake Park Ave.
  • Lakeshore Avenue, between Lake Park Ave and Mandana Blvd.

The two streets are connected at their closest point by Lake Park Avenue and Splashpad Park, home of the neighborhood's large Saturday farmers' market.

The Grand Lake neighborhood has seen a degree of revitalization since the 1990s and under the mayoral term of Mayor Jerry Brown. The property values of the area have increased as a result, contributing to the overall rise in land value of the San Francisco Bay Area.
