- Our Monthly Tour - We recommend coming on a tour as your first step if you want to be on our
List of Interested People.
We conduct regularly scheduled tours on the first Sunday of each month (with some exceptions if
it's a holiday weekend or no one has signed up). The tour starts at 1:30pm (note new time beginning Feb 2013) and takes
about an hour depending on the size of the group. It's recommended that you wear shoes that are
easy to take on and off, as some
areas of our community are "shoeless" and the tour goes more smoothly if we don't have to spend too much time
dealing with shoes on and off.
contact us to let us know you're coming. You must RSVP by end of day the Friday before the tour. No
- Cohousing Association Bus Tour - We are also one of the stops on the Bay Area bus tour that takes place
3-4 times a year. These bus tours are a unique and wonderful opportunity to see several cohousing communities all in the same day,
meet other people interested in cohousing, and meet and talk with the tour leader who is an experienced cohouser.
Sign up for the bus tour on the Cohousing Association website.
Map, Directions & Parking
Directions From Berkeley:
Take 24 East towards Walnut Creek. When it meets 680,
take 680 North.
Take the Monument Blvd. exit and at the end of the exit ramp turn right onto Monument.
- Go straight through the light at Buskirk and then immediately a right on Marcia
(just before the 76 station/Food Shop (used to be Valero)) and QUICK left onto Lisa Lane.
- Go to the end of the street
(it dead-ends at Fair Oaks Elementary School) and we're on the left (easy
to spot - we're the mango-colored buildings).
NOTE: There is a newly refurbished apartment complex (Garden Park Apartments)
also on our street, also on the left, also painted a mango-ish color! We
are beyond that, at the end of the street, right before the school.
- Park in the gravel area outside the fence that runs alongside our
driveway (you can see it in the photo below). Don't worry about the no parking sign -- it's ok to park
there. Walk up the driveway to the Common House front door, or around the building to the patio area in back.
