NOT SAFE - I WAS ROBBED AT GUNPOINT AND ASSAULTED HERE IN 2018. This is not a joke - I went on a 1hr walk/hike here based on the reviews on AllTrails because I was looking for a new place to walk by the water. I was robbed at gunpoint and sexually assaulted, during the daytime, in the parking lot where other cars were present. If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone here. The east bay regional park police have been wonderful and are investigating my case very seriously. In talking to a police officer after the incident, they told me that this park is not safe and criminal activity here is common. I am lucky I was not shot. Please be very careful and choose a different place to walk. Also, be careful in the Oakland City parks area in general - when possible choose parks outside of Oakland city.
