On April 20, 1969, a group of activists, Berkeley residents, and idealistic Cal students took it upon themselves to take a blighted, empty lot next to the university campus and turn it into a public park. Our park, The Peoples Park, was born from a dream of free speech and common space in a turbulent time 53 years ago. It has been threatened and defended many times over the years.
Join us--activists, students, artists, musicians, travelers, and homeless people who believe in those ideals and PROTECT PEOPLES PARK on Sunday 24th, 2022 at our Anniversary Concert!
We rely on this free, green, and open space for the community, love, and healing we find here. We will continue to fight for that long-ago dream.
