Middle Harbor Shoreline Park

We had a nice walk in the Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland this Sunday. The park is just a narrow strip of land fronting the bay amid the busy Oakland container port. But this strip of land and the marshland has the best location. It has great open feel and the bay view is exceptional. This area used to be used by industrial and militarily before it was turned into a park just a few years ago. Now it has become a little known gem in the East Bay.

It is perhaps the best place to see the Port of Oakland in operation. However, when we were there, there were no loading and unloading activities. There was not even a ship docked at a berth on this side of the port. All I saw was many giant cranes standing. I am aware that global shipping activities are way down this year. But why were there no ships? Perhaps it is just because it was a Sunday in the Easter weekend?
