Pooches on the Paths: Exploring the Hidden Gems of the Ocean View District

Date and time: Saturday, May 20 @ 10 a.m.

Leaders:  Wally & Figgy

Start: Cedar-Rose Park (1300 Rose Street) at the Cedar Street side near the Ohlone Greenway crosswalk.

Walk back in time with our four-legged friends on this flat, two-mile stroll through Berkeley’s historic Ocean View District. Founded in 1853 on what was then the edge of the Bay, it already was a thriving community when it was incorporated into the new city of Berkeley in 1873. You’ll be bow-wowed by the lovely Victorian homes we’ll pass and by two Berkeley landmarks: Good Shepherd Church (1878) and First Presbyterian Church (1879). More modern sights will include colorful murals and a community garden. As part of our All-the- Parks-in- Berkeley Series, this walk of course will include parks— eight to be exact! Everyone is welcome with or without a dog.
