The intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and Fruitvale Avenue is the heart of Oakland's Dimond neighborhood. The walkable neighborhood boasts several major banks, two major grocery stores, a pharmacy, and various mom-and-pop businesses. Families appreciate a branch of the Oakland Public Library, as well as Dimond Park and Dimond Recreation Center on Fruitvale Avenue. The Dimond Improvement Association (DIA) is committed to making the tight-knit neighborhood “a vital, safe and beautiful place” for its residents and plans community events -- including the annual Oaktober festival. Interstate 580 forms the neighborhood's southern border, a convenient perk for commuters. Those who prefer public transportation can use AC Transit's NL bus line, which runs down MacArthur Boulevard and offers transbay service to downtown San Francisco on both weekdays and weekends.
