People’s Park information
This park, just east of Telegraph, between Haste St and Dwight Way, is a marker in local history as a political battleground between residents and the city and state government in the late 1960s. The park has since served mostly as a gathering spot for Berkeley’s homeless. A publicly funded restoration spruced it up a bit, and occasional festivals do still happen here, but it’s rather run-down.
