September 2002




In September 2002, Oakland’s Parks and Recreation Department installed pathway signs around Lake Merritt. The amateurish signs, not derived from any adopted standard, left many confused due to their amusing placement. Though now removed, the overly tall wooden poles had at the time sprouted up like mushrooms. One post placed the sign uselessly up high amid tree leaves. Another sign at the Channel Path and 8th Street directed bicyclists toward a fence barricade in the center median.
