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.
