Central Berkeley is a very friendly and walker-friendly community, only ten minutes from downtown and twenty minutes from the Berkeley Bowl. A safe ethnically diverse neighborhood, with many parks, including a Tot Lot, Central Berkeley is welcoming to families.
Central Berkeley schools are divided by zone, rather than neighborhood, allowing more choice in education. With a population comprised of a wide variety of ages, views, and professions and easy to find street parking, Central Berkeley is a great place to live. Easy access to public transportation, established bike zones, and level sidewalks make commuting a breeze from this community, as well.
