In celebration of the centennial of Berkeleys public park system, Susan Cerny will lead a walking tour co-sponsored by the Berkeley Historical Society and BAHA. Explore Indian Rock, Mortar, and Grotto Parks and John Hinkel Park. These are Berkeley treasures, full of native oaks, winding footpaths and large stone outcroppings. The parks are surrounded by picturesque homes set in lush gardens, often with rock outcroppings and nearby paths. The tour will focus on the men who developed these areas, as well as the architects and landscape architects. Not wheelchair accessible.
