Jack London Square
Jack London Square recaptures the vivid history of the City of Oakland and the adventurous spirit of legendary writer Jack London, emerging as a vibrant Bay Area destination.
Steeped in maritime lore, Jack London Square is one of Oakland's most identifiable landmarks and a symbol of the city's history as a seaport. Once the heart of Oakland's port operations, it remains a vibrant working waterfront.
1956 Webster Street
Getting to Jack London Square is easy — once you arrive at the Oakland Station (at Jack London Square), you're there. The train station is located in the heart of Jack London Square and just steps away from unique restaurants and shops. As an added bonus, on weekends you can enjoy the Oakland Artisans Marketplace (Farmers Market) at Embarcadero and Broadway. Once you step off the train onto the platform, you can take the pedestrian bridge (with elevator) over the tracks to the waterfront side of the street, or walk about a block to the first cross street (away from the train station) and turn left to access the waterfront.
