To see some of what has been accomplished in the past few years, head to the group facebook page here (you may need to have a facebook account to see the entire list). In 2024, we’ll be retiring this facebook page, but you will still see much of what we do by following our @grandlakeneighbors instagram page.

Welcome to Grand Lake Neighbors

Welcome to the Grand Lake Neighbors website. Grand Lake Neighbors is a group of volunteers working together to preserve and improve the Grand Lake district of Oakland. Our mission is threefold:

  • Communication – sharing information and keeping each other informed about issues in our area
  • Solving problems – tapping into the incredible talent in our neighborhood to address specific problems
  • Effecting change – being an agent for improving our quality of life

Our primary focus is on sharing information. We hope to foster an information network that provides broader communication among the many individuals and groups that are now working independently.

We are just getting started. Technically, the site went live on July 13, 2009, and the first substantial content appeared in July. We welcome your input, ideas, and, since this is a volunteer effort, your help. Please leave a comment. Do you like what we are doing? What neighborhood issues are important to you? What kind of information could we provide that would be helpful to you?

Take a look at the About Us and History pages for more information on who we are and where we came from. And check out the useful links to community resources on the right.

Grand Lake Neighbors meets the third Wednesday of every odd-numbered month from 7-8:30PM at Lakeshore Baptist Church, Barnett Hall. Look for notices on Nextdoor, facebook & instagram (@grandlakeneighbors) and our email list.
