I know there are lots of different kinds of events held here (craft fairs, raves, etc.), but my review is for the configuration used for the free July 3rd concert by the Oakland Symphony. The stage is set with the bay view as a backdrop,...More

This is a great place for events and trade shows. The view of the bay is outstanding. The facilities are functional if not upscale. Perhaps if they would make some cosmetic and restroom upgrades they could attract more events.

Parking is less than optimal, but the space is wide open, well lit and spacious. Great for a home show or others of that ilk.

The Lawrence Hall of Science was so much better with a similar exhibit. It was overcrowded, over priced, dirty and no attention to detail. Low quality, high price. Go to the park. The venue itself is great.
