April – October 2014
Join OUP for a walk along Oakland’s waterfront. We will explore Union Point Park, the Bay Trail, and the copious public art displayed in the Jingletown Junction artist community, nestled between the Park Street Bridge and Fruitvale Bridge.
The walk starts at at the Cryer Boatworks on the corner of Embarcadero Road and Dennison Street at 10:00 AM. There is plenty of available parking at the adjacent Union Point Park. This walk is going to be very sunny: bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and a hat. This is a more “urban” walk than many done by OUP. The walk will include segments without sidewalks, a shortcut through a railroad right-of-way, and the possibility of broken glass. Hearty dogs are welcome, but we recommend discretion when choosing to bring them on the walk.
Here’s a map of our route: Waterfront Walk Route Map
Join Oakland Urban Paths as we explore Upper Rockridge, and look at some transportation history with BART, the Sacramento Northern Railway, and the 24 freeway, as well as other hills history like landslides and the 1991 firestorm.
We’ll start and finish in front of Chabot Elementary. The walk is moderately strenuous with some hills and pathways. Dogs on leash are welcome.
Details are still being worked out, but in July we’ll join our friends from the 10,000 Steps Project to explore the Golden Gate District in North Oakland.
We’ll explore Butters Canyon with local historian Dennis Evanosky.
