Visalia is a great tree lined street where a diverse group of neighbors look out for each other, have a block party, an email list to share events (and backyard birds). The Thousand Oaks Neighborhood Association (TONA – tona.org) keeps people informed about what’s going on.
1614 Visalia is around the corner from Kensington’s Colusa Market, Sunday Farmers’ Market, Kensington Pub, SemiFreddis Breads and Pastries, and Post Meridian restaurant (great brunch!)
The Thousand Oaks neighborhood’s Solano Avenue restaurants, book store, banks, shops (and soon-to-be ice cream store) are just a few blocks south on Colusa.
Travel north and in about a 5 minute drive you’ll find yourself at El Cerrito Plaza shops and BART
A little known fun fact about the location … travel little more than a block away and you can go to 2 counties and 4 cities … practically without leaving a block! Here’s more information on what I call Berkeley’s “Four Corners” neighborhood.
