Walk Along the Water

The exhibition, "Walk Along the Water, Oakland's Dynamic Waterfront", was developed by a team of interested people from the community in collaboration with the Oakland Museum of California. The exhibition explored the estuary waterfront from many perspectives history, environment, and recreation as well as business and economic elements. The exhibition opened to the public in the History Department of the museum October 5, 1996 and ran through May 4, 1997.

This webpage draws on some of the historical elements developed for the exhibition to highlight the fascinating changes over time on the Oakland and Alameda waterfronts.
