Union Point Park

Union Point Park sets a new standard for public open space on Oakland's waterfront. A collaborative effort of PGA and Grupo de Diseño Urbano, the design transformed a nine-acre industrial brownfield site into a major civic asset providing bayfront access, panoramic views, picnic & recreational facilities, public art and a performance space.

Elevated berm gardens, extensive plantings and a 21-foot-high hill belie the site's recent flat and barren condition. Sophisticated sustainability measures were incorporated in site remediation and newly-designed elements.
