Oakland has a new connection to its waterfront. Thoughtfully planned public parks, plazas, promenades and a new marina—Brooklyn Basin will combine the best of urban living with the splendors of life on the waterfront.
Brooklyn Basin’s waterfront parks, lively street life and attractive residential living options will create a new destination in the heart of the Bay Area.
Imagine a new neighborhood on the water, surrounded by open space and stunning views of San Francisco Bay and the East Bay hills. Brooklyn Basin will be a vibrant new district on the Oakland Estuary, re-establishing this section of the waterfront as a civic destination of regional importance. In addition to its vast network of parks, an inspired blend of cultural, commercial and recreational activities will enhance Brooklyn Basin’s appeal as a Bay Area destination. A diverse mix of residents will further enliven this part of the City, establishing it as a flourishing place for people to enjoy.
Picture boats floating in and out of the marina and families picnicking by the water. The City will gain access to a significant part of its shoreline through Brooklyn Basin’s public open spaces and marina. New parks will be created and restored, all linked by a pedestrian and bicycle trail system that connects Jack London Square with Oakland’s eastern waterfront.
“Brooklyn Basin is the culmination of years of planning and community input and will revitalize this part of Oakland’s historic waterfront.”
