2231 Roosevelt Avenue

With easy access to public transportation and Interstate 80, and many amenities within walking distance, Central Berkeley is one of the city’s most convenient neighborhoods. Central Berkeley residents are a short stroll away from the North Berkeley BART station on Sacramento Street or the Downtown Berkeley BART station on Shattuck Avenue, convenient for those who work in San Francisco. University Avenue, the neighborhood’s main east-to-west thoroughfare, leads directly to Interstate 80. University Avenue is also home to numerous restaurants -- serving all types of cuisine -- as well as other businesses. Homes in the neighborhood sit on quiet, tree-lined street and range from modest bungalows and cottages to larger, custom-built properties. Families enjoy Strawberry Creek Park, which offers a playground, tennis and basketball courts, soccer fields, and a picnic area. Other outdoor recreation spots in the neighborhood include Presentation Park, Cedar-Rose Park, and Berkeley Way Mini-Park.
