Please send me info on times etc on your events in the Gardens at Lake Merritt. I am especially interested in bonzai garden. How far is this from the Oakland Zoo? We would like to do both areas in one day – Also, could you furnish a phone number for the gardens? Thank you……………Dorothy

The Bonsai Garden also has their own website with more detailed information on their activities . The zoo and the Gardens at Lake Merritt are 20 minutes apart, both close to Hi-580. Keep checking the website for ongoing and new events.

Hi Dorthy – Thank you for your interest. The Gardens are located next to Lake Merritt at 666 Bellevue, off Grand Ave., next to Fairyland. The Gardens and the Oakland Zoo are both special places; possibly too much fun for one day. Gardens at Lake Merritt phone is 510-504-9780.
