About Montclair
Montclair is an upscale, safe, residential neighborhood that is adjacent to Berkeley and Piedmont. Nearby is the Redwood Regional Park's 1836 acres.

The Montclair Village is nestled in the upper Oakland hills amongst the pine trees. The mountain atmosphere is refreshing and laid back. The friendly people who live and work in Montclair enhance the small town appeal of the village. This inviting atmosphere makes it comfortable for visitors to spend the day shopping and sight seeing.

Local Recreation

Hiking and Nature

Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve - about .4 miles

Huckleberry Botanic Regional Preserve is an ecological jewel. The native plant community here is found nowhere else in the East Bay . It represents a relic plant association found only in certain areas along California 's coast where ideal soil and climatic conditions exist.

Sibley Volcanic Reserve

East Bay residents have a volcano in their backyard at Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve. Originally called Round Top Park , Sibley shares with Temescal and Tilden the distinction of being one of the East Bay Regional Park District's original parks. The preserve was later named in honor of Robert Sibley, who helped found the District and served for 10 years on its board of directors.

Redwood -1.7 miles

On Redwood Road , just a few miles over the ridge from downtown Oakland , is a hidden redwood forest whose peaceful groves give little evidence of its bustling past. In the mid-1800s, what is now Redwood Regional Park was the scene of extensive logging to supply building materials for the San Francisco Bay Area.

The logging era has long since passed, and a stately forest of 150-foot coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) has replaced those cut down.

Woodminster

High in the hills of Oakland , in beautiful Joaquin Miller Park , experience the magic of musical theatre under the stars. The Woodminster Summer Musicals are performed in Woodminster Amphitheater, a classic open-air performance facility which was constructed as a WPA project and dedicated in 1940 to California writers. The setting is beautiful Joaquin Miller Park , which is home to picnic grounds, miles of hillside trails, and one of the only urban second-growth redwood groves in existence. The Cascade Wedding Site is situated behind the amphitheater, and provides a beautiful setting for events, weddings and walks.
