Walk Around Mastick Park on Sunday

At 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 26, Alameda residents are invited to take a stroll through Mastick Park with local historian Woody Minor.

Walkers are asked to meet at the West Marine Parking Lot, which is located at the corner of Buena Vista Avenue and Constitution Way. If possible, participants are asked to park on adjacent neighborhood streets rather than in the West Marine lot.

Mastick is Alameda’s oldest 20th-Century subdivision — and one of its least-known historic neighborhoods. It is also known as the area that gave “birth to the bungalow” in the Bay Area.

The event is organized by the members of the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society. It is free for AAPS members; and $5 for non-members.
