The East End is basically comprised of three neighborhoods: the Fernside District, where elegant Mediterranean homes dating back to the 1930s nestle on winding tree-lined streets; a district of older, turn-of-the-century homes and apartments spreading out from a quaint commercial district at Versailles and Encinal, and a charming section of homes built after World War II, east of High Street. Like the rest of Alameda, it’s a wonderful area to explore on foot. East End residents enjoy shopping at the popular Encinal Market, strolling Thompson Avenue, which transforms into "Christmas Tree Lane" each December, and exploring Lincoln Park, a gracious expanse of lawn, oak trees, and a rose garden that offers a playground, baseball field, tennis courts, basketball courts, swimming pool, and recreation center.
