People's Park

recommendation by goose

Berkeley students, local business owners and hippies fought hard to make this space a public park in the late 60s. President Reagan criticized UC Berkeley for letting the students go too far and there was a show-down in 1969 where one protester was killed. It's now a mellow little park where homeless folks sleep and hang out and Food Not Bombs serves lunch daily.
