Lake Merritt Parking Management Plan

Thousands of people visit Lake Merritt every weekend when the weather is welcoming. There are often more people seeking to access this public park by car than there are parking spaces available. To maintain equitable community access to these spaces, City efforts have included heavy police presence and closure of major streets and lanes – which have been expensive and may have decreased access to the park for some users.
