Strawberry Creek Design Center
Berkeley Public Transportation: The Strawberry Creek Design Center is close to the North Berkeley BART (cross streets, Sacramento and Virginia). Walk up Sacramento Street to Addison (one block past University Ave.), make a right on Addison, and go a few blocks to the corner of Addison and Bonar (it’s a pleasant 10-minute walk from BART). Make a left on Bonar and walk to the Bonar Street entrance (2121 Bonar). For bus line information, please call MUNI to get exact directions from your starting location.
From San Francisco: Cross the Bay Bridge and take I-80 to the University Ave. exit. Take University Ave. to Bonar Street (two blocks past San Pablo Avenue). Turn right on Bonar, go one block to the intersection of Bonar and Addison. You will see the Strawberry Creek Design Center looming large, on the corner. Our door is another half block up the Street on Bonar. You can park anywhere around here, on either Addison or Bonar.
