China Basin Park


I had a post planned for today but decided not to run it. It is because, we had something in the Bay Area we haven't had for a while and that is the sun. It has been cloudy, rainy and dreary over the 45 days. So I decided head over to China Basin Park. The park is small but very cool. It is directly across from (now) Oracle Park-The Home of the San Francisco Giants. The body of water that separates the the two is called McCovey Cove-named for the Giants Hall of Fame slugger Willie McCovey:




On a clear day, you can see the Port of Oakland










Of course being next to the ballpark there might be some baseball things:

Jr. Giants field


They have plaques of all the Giants teams that played at Seals Stadium and Candlestick Park. I chose the one from year I was born

  1. The sunshine is really wonderful today. I have never explored that area before even though I passed through there to get to the ballpark.

  2. The Giants stadium stands out from all other ball parks, a great shot from China Basin Park. Glad you got to see the sun, I hear it's just going to start snowing and may never stop. Not there, here, but I guess you never know.
    That rower makes me feel like a slug.
