Oakland Urban Paths Walk

Posted by Len Gilbert on December 7, 2012

I got this in my email and they look interesting. Oakland Urban Paths is hosting a series of walks in our area. For more details, see their website at http://www.oaklandurbanpaths.org

Hi Oakland Urban Pathers

If we’re not already on your calendar, mark the date and join us for our third annual Walk and Shop this Saturday, December 8th.

We’ll explore the neighborhoods connecting Lakeshore, Grand and Piedmont Avenues. It’s a truly a lovely walk with lake, cemetary and creek views a plenty.
When we get to Piedmont Avenue, we’ll take a break for some shopping and snacking. Walkers from years past have appreciated having this dedicated time to get gifts and support Oakland businesses.

We will also have a variety of cool Oakland walking goods for sale including Walk Oakland Maps, the Secret Stairs of the East Bay book and authentic OUP shirts.
These wares make excellent holiday gifts!
