"Nice Place to Work, but Watch Out for Busses"

I've been working in an office building on Marina Village Parkway for a few months. I bicycle to work, and this is the last part of my ride. It's smooth sailing: flat streets, low traffic, and a dedicated bike lane to boot. I once almost ran into a mamma duck and three of her ducklings who were crossing. Very cute.

The office complex is great, and it's walking distance from a strip mall with various food options and a Lucky's. It's nice working someplace that feels "homey" but where I can walk out the door and see the tall buildings of downtown Oakland, a half dozen boats, and the water of the estuary.

If you have the extra time, it's worth it to take the walking/bicycle shared path on the water front, but I usually skip it. The only thing to watch out for are the buses. They don't signal and they sure as heck aren't looking for you on your bicycle.

"Commercial Center of Western Alameda"

Marina village pkwy is sort of the commercial center for the western part of the Alameda island. It has a large strip mall with supermarkets and drugstore as well as a plethora of quality fast food restaurants. Behind the strip mall is a vast array of office park buildings that is within a stone's throw to the ocean. It is not too busy during the weekdays traffic-wise, and it is a pleasure to walk by the ocean or visit the fountain during the weekend.
