Event description

Description

Explore the western edge of residential Oakland where houses from the 1800s mingle with numerous industrial land uses. Ray Kidd says of City Slicker Farm Park, “When I moved here, it was a junkyard with wrecked cars stacked several high.” A generation before that, it was deep in the West Oakland Marsh. Within sight of a historic wooden railroad trestle and the EBMUD sewage plant, we will head west and south from last year’s tour route and go where spur tracks still outnumber sidewalks—but for how long? A level walk with possible site visits.

Leader: Betty Marvin, Ray Kidd, and West Oakland Neighbors

Location: City Slicker Farm Park, 2847 Peralta Street
