Creating a Lush Tropical Paradise in PiedmontIn her memoir about life in Piedmont, Elsie Whitaker Martinez remembered fishing with her brothers in the Piedmont Heights in the 1880s. A myriad of streams found their way from Alta, Scenic, Pacific and Mountain Avenues. Most fed into the city's largest waterway, Bushy Dell Creek. Today asphalt, cement and modern landscaping have forced water flow underground or into manmade culverts and Bushy Dell Creek is a shadow of its former self.
