South Park Walkabout
Dec 5 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The South Park Walkabout is a quarterly fun-filled evening festival that showcases all the unique and independent businesses within South Park. Enjoy complimentary treats, live entertainment and special offers.

The Walkabout highlights both the south and north end of the South Park business district.  The north end of our district starts at Kalmia and 30th St. and extends to the south end at Beech and 30th Street. 

A few ways to get to South Park – 

  • Take 5 South to 94 East to the 28th Street exit.  Turn right on 28th and then right on Beech Street
  • Take 5 North to the Pershing Drive exit.  Turn right on 26th Street.  Head up the hill and make a  left on A Street.  Another left on 28th Street and a final right on Beech Street.
  • Take 805 South or North to 94 West  and exit on 28th Street.  Turn right onto 28th Street and right onto Beech Street

The 30th Street and Beech Street corridor is the south end of South Park. If you turn left on 30th and head North toward Grape Street and Juniper Street you can easily access the north end of South Park.  This stretch is roughly 10 blocks and totally walkable or bikeable for those who prefer, however please keep in mind it gets a little hilly when heading north.
