JLAC is a 10 minute walk from Lake Merit Bart station. Students travel to JLAC by BART after school in time for practice at 4:30pm, and get picked up by parents after practice.

By Car:

  • Take highway 24/980 toward Downtown Oakland and highway 880 (the Nimitz) and get off at the Jackson St. exit just after crossing over 880.
  • Continue on Jackson Street through 2 sets of lights and at the 2nd light (Shell station) turn right on to Oak St.
  • After crossing the railroad tracks, Oak St. curves left merging into the Embarcadero; Jack London Square is on the right, but continue left, passing a discount warehouse.
  • The Jack London Aquatic Center driveway is on the right, at Estuary Park, before you cross the bridge.
  • To return, backtrack to Oak St; at the light cross under the freeway and turn left onto 6th St. continue straight two blocks to the 880 on ramp.
