The Golden Gate District website is a collaboration of San Pablo Avenue and Golden Gate District merchants, organizations, residents, artists, and workers. This is our virtual hub for news, events, happenings, business promotions, and building community.
Please join us in contributing and making use of this community hub for the benefit of everyone who lives, works, shops, visits, and travels through the Golden Gate District of Oakland, California, 94608.
The Golden Gate District, originally named for its views of the Golden Gate, was founded by Charles and Katherine Klinkner in 1877, and annexed by Oakland in 1897.

This historic residential and commercial district located in North Oakland between Emeryville and Berkeley is anchored by a vibrant stretch of San Pablo Avenue from 53rd to 67th Streets. The central location, bay breezes and warm East Bay weather have made it a popular place for merchants, artists, residents, and visitors alike.
