Greenbelt Alliance Walk: Exploring North Berkeley

From Greenbelt Alliance:

See how Berkeley has changed over time as we meander city streets to experience a wide variety of historic architecture, from grand Victorian villas to unique Maybeck designs.  We’ll also explore the area’s unique paths, the Gourmet Ghetto, Codornices Creek, Berkeley Rose Garden, and more.

We will be mostly on city sidewalks but there will be a few streets with no sidewalks, as well as some public steps and paths.
