A walk through the Edible Schoolyard garden is an ideal way to entertain visiting grandparents and small kids at the same time. Situated behind Hopkins Park and the King Middle School track, it can be accessed by following staircases from the back of the King Middle School campus toward the left – or by parking at a dead end on Berryman Street, just past Josephine.
A thriving acre of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers, the garden is also home to a small water feature and a handful of chickens that never fail to entertain kids. Foodies will appreciate this Alice Waters-inspired project.
New moms looking for a babywearing stroll might enjoy walking along the Hopkins Street shops between Sacramento and McGee before heading up towards the King Track. Cross the track and look for stairs that take you up toward the garden.
