Historical Markers 

These interpretive historical markers were developed and installed by the City of Oakland Public Works Agency and Community and Economic Development Agency. The markers enhance the route of the Regional San Francisco Bay Trail through Oakland. Designed and produced under contract with PGAdesign, the twelve markers are installed along the 6.2 mile long Bay Trail segment extending from West Oakland to Embarcadero Cove.

The project received funding support from Measure DD, the State Recreational Trails Program, the Bay Trail project, the Coastal Conservancy, and the Association of Bay Area Governments. It drew on the resources of the Oakland Cultural Heritage Survey, the History Room at the Oakland Public Library, the Oakland Museum of California, and the Port of Oakland.

The markers provide a rich overview of the key historical features of the Oakland waterfront.
