Oak to Ninth Area Parks
City of Oakland Estuary Policy Plan calls for three major parks on Port
of Oakland land near the mouth of the Lake Merritt channel, and Measure
DD included partial funding for acquisition and development of these
Channel Park (AKA Meadow Park)
9th Ave Terminal Park
Estuary Park currently exists and is open to the public, though the park
is not in the enhanced form planned by Measure DD. Neither of the
other two parks exists.
Plans call for Bay Trail connections along the shoreline of this region.

The Port of Oakland is now proposing to sell the land that incorporates
this park space to a private developer for the Oak
to Ninth commercial mixed-used project. The Oak to Ninth plans
include park area generally similar to those originally planned, though
smaller. That project has completed the permissions and planning
stages. It has been the subject of a lawsuit and a court order finding the project EIR to be
deficient. As a consequence of the court order, previous
governmental were revoked and the project was delayed
When construction proceeds, the project
and its parks will be built out over the next 15 years under the terms of
a development agreement between the developer and the City
