Neighborhood Gallery

1760 Marin Avenue

Tucked in between the Berkeley Hills, Kensington, and the vibrant Solano Avenue shopping district, Berkeley’s Thousand Oaks neighborhood is a family-friendly enclave that boasts a great suburban feel close to the big city. 
Natural rock outcroppings are a notable feature of this neighborhood, with many such formations incorporated into backyards, driveways, and even interior home design. The original developers in Thousand Oaks were sensitive to the natural landscape and laid out the streets to follow the gently curving topography. Ancient oaks were preserved, and the largest rock was donated by the developer and turned into a public park. Today, Great Stone Face Park in the hills is still popular with rock climbers practicing their skills.
Public transportation in Thousand Oaks is great. Several Alameda-Contra Costa Transit transbay buses whisk commuters from Solano Avenue to San Francisco. Residents in Thousand Oaks have two BART stations to choose from: both the El Cerrito Plaza and North Berkeley BART stations are just a few miles away.
Large yards, safe streets, and a quiet vibe make Thousand Oaks popular with families.
