With open houses at each of its recreation centers and free Swim days at City Pools, July is heating up to be a great Free and Fun month.  Visit http://www.oaklandnet.com/parks/programs/nrpm_coe.asp for the listing of activities.  Included with these activities is a Free Movie Night this Friday July 9th at the Redwood Heights recreation center.  This friday they are playing one of my personal favorites The Princess Bride.  Food and drink are available for a donation that supports the City of Oakland scholarship fund.

Lake Merritt Rowing Club plays host to the SW Masters Regional this Sunday July 11th.  It appears 64 races will take place throughout the day Sunday.  If you’ve driven by the lake you’ve noticed what appears to be floating keg cups.  That’s the new course for the race.  So grab your lawn chair and a picnic basket and head on down.  Look like best viewing will be along Lakeshore Ave, but races will be running along the Lakeside Dr finger too.
