Hearst and Shattuck Avenues

Greenbelt Alliance board member Bob Johnson will help us explore the birthplace of California cuisine and the contemporary style of coffee shops.

There are some good lessons in what makes pedestrian-friendly, good urban design as our route includes varied historic and contemporary architecture and one of Berkeley’s first city parks. This is one of the many walks featured in Bob Johnson and Janet Byron’s book, Berkeley Walks.
