Poets Corner is a small, bustling neighborhood located just west of Central Berkeley. The neighborhood features fully remodeled bungalows which date back to the 1920s, along with beautiful Tudor-style homes. Notable 17th-Century English and 19th-Century poets account for the street names (and the famous neighborhood’s name, of course), many of which do not extend beyond the boundaries of the Poets Corner neighborhood. Living near a beautiful public park is important to many Bay Area residents, and Strawberry Creek Park sits at the heart of Poets Corner. Built on the site of Santa Fe Railroad’s freight yard, Strawberry Creek Park is a great place for individuals, couples, and families to enjoy their favorite recreation activities. Amenities include lighted tennis courts, multi-use field, basketball courts, playground, and a picnic area with BBQ grills. No matter where you live within the neighborhood, you are always within walking distance of Strawberry Creek Park. Most of the restaurants and stores, and service shops in Poets Corner are near the intersection of San Pablo and University Avenues. A few of the notable/popular restaurants and shops in this area include Highwire Coffee Roasters, Alpha Design Custom Furniture, and La Capilla Berkeley. Commuting to and from the Poets Corner neighborhood is incredibly easy thanks to the close proximity of Downtown Berkeley. The Downtown Berkeley BART Station is a 10-minute bike ride or a short rideshare trip away, which makes traveling to Oakland, San Francisco, and the entire East Bay a breeze. Poets Corner residents who prefer to drive can hop onto the I-80 and be on the Bay Bridge in less than 15 minutes.
