Document Description
The El Cerrito portion of the Ohlone Greenway is an approximately 2.7 mile, 21 acre (or 912,000 sf) linear park and non-motorized transportation corridor underneath and adjacent to the elevated BART tracks. The Greenway traverses the entire length of the City running roughly parallel to San Pablo Avenue. To its south, it connects with the Albany Ohlone Greenway which connects to the Berkeley Ohlone Greenway. To its north, it is planned to eventually connect to the Central Richmond Greenway which is under construction. The developed site is in a highly urbanized area, and the Greenway is constructed on what was once a freight railroad right-of-way and underneath and adjacent to current elevated BART tracks.
