How many times have you passed the giant cranes on the Bay Bridge wondering if you could get a closer glimpse of the majestic steel beasts? Well turns out you can, if you know how to get there.
This lesser known spot that I just recently uncovered is Oakland’s Port View Park. For the adventurous, a 10 minute drive from downtown on 7th street will provide ample amounts of crane views, Bay Bridge shots & views of the city.
Cruising to the park may conjure up mixed feelings of I’m lost , is this legal, Ive Gone to far or I hope one of these semis doesn’t plow me. Don’t let these sway you from the light at the end of the tunnel.
But don’t just take my words & pictures for it, go take a peek.
