Love the greenbelts in Davis, especially north davis where you get to see eclectic art, like the whimsical dogs by Jean Van Keuren.

Fortunate people have a home backing up to a green belt. The rest of us can pick a spot and start wandering along. We like brisk walking watching out for bike people who sneak up from behind. Don't worry your direction as you can always...More

No. There are a number of parks and paths which run throughout a good portion of town. Many are connected to one another. There are additional parks in town. None charge admission.

Find a description of the areas on the Da is wiki. Not sure "pretty" is the right word for the greenbelt. Its more that you can enjoy a pleasant walk or ride - free of traffuc hassle.
