A Walk for All Senses on the Ohlone Greenway

Date and time: Sunday, July 23 @ 11 a.m.

Leaders:  Janet Byron and Robert Johnson

Start:  North Berkeley BART Station (southeast side)

 

Join the co-authors of Berkeley Walks: Revealing Rambles Through America’s Most Intriguing City for this accessible stroll — or roll — along the Ohlone Greenway in Berkeley.  We’ll focus on the varied sights, sounds, touches, smells, and tastes along 1.2 miles of this flat, well-loved bike and pedestrian trail on a former railroad right-of-way. At Marin Avenue, you can continue to Solano Avenue for lunch at a nearby eatery or double back with the group, passing a few more restaurants on Gilman Street.  Bay Area Outreach and Recreation Program (BORP) is co-sponsoring this walk.  The route has sitting areas and accessible restrooms, and service and guide dogs are welcome.  If you are physically disabled or sight impaired and need transportation, contact BORP’s Lori Gray by July 1 at (510) 849-4663, ext. 1373 or lori@borp.org.  Janet and Bob will have books for sale for $20 (cash, check, or credit card).
