We return in 2021 with the route we walked in 2019. Beginning in Barrio Hollywood on the aptly named Grande Avenue. Winding our way parallel to the Santa Cruz and ending at the MSA Annex.
The route is on the West side, paralleling the Santa Cruz River. It begins on Grande Avenue south of Speedway Boulevard., left on St. Mary’s Road, then right onto Bonita Avenue. It flows around the Garden of Gethsemane toward the Finale Site, situated between the river and the Mercado San Agustin. Pedestrians will be able to continue on the Riverwalk south of Congress Street and take the stairs at Cushing Street up to the Finale site. (Floats and others who do not want to tackle stairs will want to turn right at Congress Street to access the Finale site.)
As you walk, Be generous and gracious to our neighbors who have invited us into their gardens and neighborhoods.
