This is a very nice waterfront park, great for residents to relax and enjoy a nice day. But there is not a lot to this park to draw tourists from outside. The farmers market was similar to the one in my home town (20K people), but by 2:45 most of the vendors were pretty much packed up.
One thing I would recommend for tourists or those living to the east that may want to visit San Francisco for the day is to drive to Jack London Square and take the ferry over to the SF ferry terminal or Pier 41. It is a beautiful trip and saves a lot of parking hassles and expenses. As of today, the ferry is about $6.50 each way and the parking is $7 for twelve hours.
Oakland has quite a reputation as a very dangerous town, but I did not feel at all unsafe there and had no problems with my car in the parking lot.
I will say that the signage to get to I-80 upon leaving the area is quite poor and needs to be improved.
