Blackie's Pasture, Tiburon

For 28 years you couldn’t leave or return to Belvedere or Tiburon without passing a swaybacked horse named Blackie standing in a field that became known as Blackie's Pasture.

Today, thanks to a wonderful gift by the family of Gordon Strawbridge, Tiburon's first mayor, a life-size bronze sculpture of Blackie stands in the pasture, visible to all who drive by. Created by the noted Bay Area artist, Albert Guibara, it was erected in June 1995 thanks to the Tiburon Peninsula Foundation. It’s a reminder of Tiburon's past, a link with earlier times, and a cherished memory older residents share with newcomers.

Walk Blackie's Pasture via Old Rail Trail from downtown Tiburon. Add a picnic from Woodlands Market or Rustic Bakery, and you will have an only-in-Tiburon experience.
