One of Berkeley's most affordable communities, Westbrae is an older Berkeley neighborhood full of character, cultural diversity, and residential tranquility. Gorgeous community gardens, a spacious park, playgrounds and a soccer field make it an ideal place to raise a family.
Westbrae's tree-lined streets are attractive and well-kept. Homebuyers of Westbrae real estate have their choice of Craftsman bungalows, Spanish revival cottages, post-war suburban-style homes, and a few early Victorians and farmhouses from when the town was first settled.
The jewel of Westbrae is the three-acre Cedar-Rose Park, a grassy expanse featuring two fenced playgrounds, picnic areas and public tennis courts. A jogging track, pool, and more are also open to the public at King Middle School. James Kenney Park offers midnight basketball, summer camps, tennis courts, a library, and a softball/soccer field.
