We are Rolling up Our Sleeves at Peralta Park

Berkeley Hills Realty has adopted Solano-Peralta Park. In support of our local community, Berkeley Hills has voluntarily taken on the role as Peralta Park stewards. Our responsibility includes a weekly cleanup. We are at the park every Wednesday around noon, sweeping, pruning and watering. If you are in the neighborhood (Solano Avenue @ Peralta) and want to stop by, we would love to see you.

Because of recent cuts in the city's budget, the staff caring for our local parks have been stretched thin. As a result, the city was very supportive and thankful of our efforts and even donated tools and brooms. The city also put as in touch with some key individuals who have been very responsive to our questions and have provided us with guidance along the way.
