Montclair Reviews

2
Montclair is very quaint. There is a cute village with some stores and restaurants, several of them are locally owned businesses. There are many parks only a short distance from Montclair and a few in Montclair village. I live a walkable distance from the village so my family frequently goes into the village to buy groceries. I really like it here. We are surrounded by lots of nature and I feel very secure in this part of Oakland.
