Hi, we live one block outside the area you described (on Mathews between Ward and Derby) and we are very comfortable in this neighborhood. We have two kids under 5 who play out on the block and in San Pablo park regularly, we ride our bikes everywhere and we feel safe doing so. There are a ton a families with young kids in the neighborhood and it feels like a pretty cohesive community. Having said that, there there are some property crimes in the neighborhood and the two murders that occurred in Berkeley this year happened in this part of the city--San Pablo park seems to be a magnet for these incidents. We love living here, get together regularly with our neighbors, and do not feel unsafe in any way in our daily lives. But your feelings of safety will depend on your personal comfort level living in and dealing with a gentrifying neighborhood.
