Question 1: Where’s this Oakland street sign located?
Answer: It’s in my yard, visible from the street but behind a retaining wall and far enough up a hill, drivers are unlikely to try to reach it, even on a foggy night. Although I just installed the sign a couple of weeks ago, it was given to me as a birthday present in 2003, six months before the new Splash Pad Park was dedicated. By the way, if you’re fairly new to the neighborhood, Lakepark Way no longer exists. It was removed as part of the Splash Pad Park project.
Question 2: Since the Avenue was and still is Lake Park (two words), why was the diagonal shortcut named Lakepark and how about Lakeshore?
Answer: I don’t have a clue.
