The Granada Community Services District will offer a free guided walk on the history of El Granada at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The tour will meet in front of the GCSD office at 504 Avenue Alhambra, El Granada.
The walk will be led by Barbara Dye, a GCSD board member and volunteer with the Half Moon Bay Historical Association, Friends of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and Coastside Land Trust.
Participants will learn interesting tidbits from El Granada’s past, including geologic facts, history of the Ohlone people, the impact of the Ocean Shore Railroad and the distinctive design of famous landscape architect Daniel Burnham.
The walk covers about 1.5 miles with scenic harbor views and will visit one of the early train stations and a number of original houses. Walkers will also hear about concepts for creating Burnham Park on GCSD’s property on the west side of Highway 1.
