There are about 6000 of us – at last census, just under half of us were white, about 30% of us were black, and so on with Hispanic/Latinx of any race making up 30% of our population. We’re a diverse but close-knit community.
Of the 1877 households, about 30% had children, 56% were married couples, 12% were single-mother homes, and 26% weren’t families. The median income for a household here is just under $60,000.
We pay honor to our German and Dutch farming ancestry, many of our citizens being their decedents. And to maintain the community appeal of Berkeley, we have many events all year to encourage neighbors to spend time together. Music in the Park, Dog Day at the Pool, and annual SpringFest are some of our most popular events.
