Middle Harbor Shoreline Park [1] lies west of downtown Oakland, California mostly on land formerly occupied by the Oakland Naval Supply Depot. The portion adjacent to the Port of Oakland which includes Port View Park was originally part of the Oakland Pier or Mole, the massive western terminus of the Southern Pacific Railroad. The interlocking tower from the railroad's pier has been moved and partially restored as a small commemorative museum. The Naval Supply Depot closed in 1998 and the property was transferred to the Port of Oakland. The land was developed as a park between 2002 and 2004 and is now operated by the East Bay Regional Park District. The mast of the USS Oakland is displayed at the entrance of the park.

Redevelopment of the land included restoration of beaches and creation of a lagoon. [2]
