Lake Merritt

Located in Oakland, California, Lake Merritt is a freshwater tidal lagoon that forms part of the Oakland estuary. The lake is 1.8 miles long, 0.5 miles wide, and has an average depth of 15 feet. It is the largest urban saltwater lake in the United States.

The lake was originally created in 1869 as a shipping port for the city of Oakland. However, after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the lake was used as a dumping ground for debris from the earthquake. This resulted in the lake becoming polluted and unusable. In 1925, the City of Oakland began a cleanup effort that included dredging and filling in the polluted areas. The cleanup was successful and the lake was once again used for recreation.

Today, Lake Merritt is a popular spot for walking, jogging, picnicking, and birdwatching. The lake is home to numerous species of birds, including ducks, geese, herons, and egrets. There are also several parks located around the lake, making it a great place to enjoy the outdoors.
