If someone puts them together, we can get an estimate.
Maybe we should plant some cherry trees, does anyone know if any of the
original grove still exists?

Sausal Creek Restoration Project in Dimond Park

I would like the overlook at the culvert headwall to have an
interpretive display with pictures of the Wellington footbridge and also
the original view south before the culvert. 


Watershed Art Marker Community Meeting
I won't be able to attend the meeting but want to suggest a Whittle
Creek marker by the Dimond tennis courts


Frederick Rhoda's first house next to Whittle Creek can still be seen in


"In 1859, Frederick Rhoda arrived, one of the first of many Germans to
settle in what is now the Dimond District.  On the 217 acres he
purchased next to Sausal Creek, Rhoda grew Royal Ann cherries and, in
1869 when the Transcontinental Railroad came to Oakland, shipped them to
the East Coast -- the first California-grown fruit sold in the East."
