About this event

We'll share the history and evolution of the park, as well as the many ways Berkeley's waterfront areas provide habitat for wildlife and recreation for people. Along with panoramic vistas, we'll view birds, sailboats, houseboats, kites, and more—all along fairly level terrain.

Where to Meet

We will meet where Addison Street ends at Bolivar Way in Berkeley’s Aquatic Park. If coming by car on I-80, exit at University Avenue heading east, turn right at 6th Street, and right again after one block onto Addison. Continue past the railroad tracks to Bolivar Drive. Parking is generally available along Bolivar Drive but check signage for any limitations. Cars parking on Bolivar will need to face north (on the east side of the road, no parking on the west side) so they may want to use Bancroft to go over the tracks, and go right on Bolivar to find parking.

By public transit, take the AC Transit 51B bus from downtown Berkeley or other locations. Get off at 4th Street, cross left under the University Avenue overpass and go right on Addison Street, and continue across the railroad tracks to Bolivar Drive.


Bring water, snacks, and lunch. Dress in layers and wear good walking shoes. If you have questions about this outing, please email Ken Lavin at or phone (415) 543-6771 x321.
