Walking Tour: Richmond Boulevard

Date: Saturday July 29, 2017
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: The Pergola. Croxton Avenue and Richmond Boulevard, Oakland

Walk along Glen Echo Creek, one of Oakland's living creeks, where a charming residential neighborhood was developed between 1895 and the 1920s and has structures by Frederick Reimers, Julia Morgan, A.W. Smith, and C.M. MacGregor with surviving elements from the "City Beautiful" movement. Although scarred by freeway incursion, it remains a unique and tranquil setting in our city and boasts fine examples of California bungalows, Mission and Mediterranean style homes. A mostly level walk, optional pedestrian staircase at end of tour. Leader: Vallerie Winemiller
