Feet from our front door, this quite remarkable public sanctuary reaches acorss the hills uniting Richmond, El Cerrito, and Berkeley.
Wildcat Canyon Regional Park encompasses 2,430 acres along the Wildcat Creek watershed and the surrounding hills and ridges. The park extends from the Tilden Nature Area in the south to historic Alvarado Park at the north end in Richmond. It includes a significant portion of the paved Nimitz Way coming from Inspiration point in Tilden Park. Easy access from the busy cities of the East Bay makes Wildcat Canyon a popular place for hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and those simply looking for a quiet place to spend an afternoon. Alvarado Park, with its historic stonework, provides picnic areas for large and small groups, a wonderful play area for children, and access to Wildcat Creek, all just steps from the busy streets of Richmond.(from http://www.ebparks.org/parks/wildcat - see below)
Especially if you are trying to meet us for a gathering, please consult this close-up of the Alvarado Area in which we most frequently enjoy ourselves.
