Oct. 3 Sunday stroll, progressive party celebrates volunteer greening!

On Sunday, Oct. 3, Berkeley Partners for Parks invites you to enjoy
• A leisurely afternoon stroll or bike ride
• A progressive picnic
• Music, food, fun for all ages
Celebrate great green spaces! See how Berkeley volunteers have transformed neglected scraps of city!
We’ll start at 1 PM at Presentation Park, Allston Way and California, where residents have turned thickets into a butterfly garden and more.
At 2 PM we’ll make our way to Schoolhouse Creek Common, Virginia and Curtis. Neighbors have turned an old parking lot behind Berkeley Adult School into a flowery oasis where neighbors gather, children play, and students take breaks and relax.
At 3 PM we’ll follow the old Santa Fe Railroad route, now the Ohlone Greenway, to Westbrae Commons (along the greenway between Hopkins and Gilman). There we’ll join the annual harvest-time celebration of three community gardens, restored native coastal prairie, and whimsical to spectacular public art along the old rail corridor.
Free, all welcome! (The distance is a level 1.5 mi. one way.) Information at www.bpfp.org, Charlie_Paths@comcast.net, 540 7223.
