Events: Berkeley PARK(ing) Days

1. BOND(ing) PARK(ing) on Center Street, September 19, 2008, 9 to 5 pm

Berkeley has a history of pioneering park provision and park design. The Berkeley PARK(ing) Day (Original concept was by REBAR. www.rebargroup.org) continues this tradition on Friday September 19, 2008. Berkeley Partners for Parks will host the BOND(ing) PARK(ing) on Center Street between Oxford and Shattuck beginning at 9 AM and continuing through 5 PM to showcase the importance of and need for parks and open space in our communities.

Enjoy the PARK: sit, people-watch, talk, and learn about and support Berkeley’s park measure (HH) and the East Bay Park District’s Bond Measure WW, i.e. the extension of Measure AA – passed in 1988 and which has supported the preservation of 34,000 acres of open space and the construction of over 100 miles of new trails and the development of hundreds of local parks and recreation projects. Visions for the potential public plaza with creek/water feature on this very block of Center Street by noted landscape architect, Walter Hood, may be on display as well.
