North Berkeley Senior Center

Located near Downtown Berkeley, the North Berkeley Senior Center serves Berkeley’s older adults as well as the broader community at large, updated to serve as an emergency evacuation center. As part of a seismic retrofit, the Center’s site improvements include a new accessible entry plaza, replete with raised planters which host lush drought-tolerant gardens. Expanded bicycle parking, sculpture by local artists, ample seating, sidewalk improvements and new honey locust street trees give new life to this well-used public space.
