Maxwell Park is a delightful neighborhood in Oakland, bordered by MacArthur Blvd, High Street, Foothill Blvd, and 55th Avenue. The neighborhood is adjacent to Mills College. John P. Maxwell was the developer of the area that is now named after him. An actual park, Maxwell Park, is maintained by the City of Oakland within the neighborhood. The original development area was bounded by 55th Avenue, Trask Street, Monticello Avenue and Camden Street. The land was opened for development on May 7, 1921. Burritt and Shealey, house builders to the wealthy of Piedmont, were the main builders. A journalist noted in 1921, "Landscape engineers laid out the streets so that they swing gracefully over the entire property, conforming to the scenic contour of the land." Nearby streetcar transportation and a salubrious climate were cardinal selling points. It is in East Oakland's justly famed 'warm belt'. Now the streetcars are gone and the AC Transit bus system replaced the trains in 1960. Maxwell Park is served by Line 14 which runs to and from BART. Easy access to highway 580 makes Maxwell Park an excellent commute location. Nearby Laurel Disctrict shopping and short distances to Downtown Oakland and Alameda are features that have allowed Maxwell Park to thrive as one of Oakland’s popular neighborhoods.
As the neighborhood name might suggest, Maxwell Park offers a small community park near Allendale Avenue and Lilac Street. Featuring plenty of trees, a playground, and is directly next to the Peter Pan Nursery School, which has provided a nurturing environment for kids aged 2-6 since 1947. MacArthur Boulevard, between Loma Vista and High Street, is just a few blocks from Maxwell Park, and features a variety of popular restaurants, retail stores, and service shops. Some of the notable restaurants include the World Ground Cafe, Fist of Flour Doughjo and Everett and Jones BBQ. Commuters love Maxwell Park due to the easy access to the AC Transit Route 14, which provides a direct route to the Fruitvale BART station. The bus ride to Fruitvale Station is less than 15 minutes from Maxwell Park, and from here, commuting to the heart of Oakland, or to be in San Francisco’s Financial District at Salefroce Tower is less than 30 minutes.
