In three all-new walks explore little-known paths and streets; architecture, from Victorian to striking contemporary; the first creek brought out of a culvert to be free-flowing again; bits of history; the former homes of famous Berkeleyans; the site where flower nurseries flourished; views from the hills; a wooded area; and handsome street trees, large rock outcrops, and much more. The three walks, with maps and photos in full color, are:

  • Berkeley Woods

  • Upper Shattuck and the Marin Circle

  • Strawberry Creek Park and the Santa Fe Railroad
