RE: What Park for 5-year-old Birthday Party?

Union Point Park is great & you can reserve through City of Oakland Parks and Rec Department at (510) 238-3187. We've had & attended parties there. There are two free parking lots, a structure that is shaped like a ship, sand pit, & large grassy area plus you are by the water with can look at the boats. http://www.yelp.com/biz/union-point-park-oakland

RE: Best Playgrounds in Oakland?

We've enjoyed the new-ish park at Union Point on the Oakland Waterfront, on the way to Alameda. People leave toys a-la totland and it is a nice playground with a pirate ship, kite flying and clean restrooms and sinks; a nice pic-nic area and cool spiral walking thingy... Union Point Park. 2311 Embarcadero Oakland, CA 94606

One place that we just discovered is the Union Point Park, in Oakland. It's right by Embarcadero off of 16th street exit on 880. It's so nice! it's very new, has a HUGE lawn, picnic areas and a great play area with a nautical theme. It's by the water, so you need to watch carefully, but it's perfect for a toddler

There's a new park in Oakland along the waterfront - Union Point Park (close to the Park Street Bridge to Alameda) 2311 Embarcadero is the address. It's got a great view of the estuary and sailboats, a nice play structure in the shape of a sailboat and some ride-on toys brought by neighbors. It does get hot there as there isn't enough shade yet except for the picnic tables adjacent to the play structure. I recommend checking it out.
