  • If you are in the N Berkeley area, this is a nice garden to visit. I walked there (uphill) from the town. There did appear to be some street parking outside the park, which may be harder to find on th...  more »
  • This is a totally romantic spot. The roses from May into the fall are resplendent and the views are lovely. There is a marvelous arbor and if you are interested most specimens are identified. It is lo...  more »
  • The Rose Garden itself is small. During the winter, the roses are cut back and not blooming - however, it is still worth visiting for the views. Cordornices Park is across the street and is a beautifu...  more »

  • This is a great place to visit and get some R&R in. I came here last week and was impressed by all of the wonderful roses. They also have a nice park on the other side of the street which is great for kids. The day I came I took the bus and it is a bit of a hike to get up the hills. If you do take the bus you will not need to go to the gym. I can not express how beautiful it was and the surrounding neighborhood. I would definitely be going back. Street parking only Free Clean bathrooms located outside Nice area for eating Tennis courts located next to the garden. Use the tunnel to get across the street with out having to cross on top. Park across the street is great for kids to run and play with a basketball court.
  • Park is free and such a neat place to walk around. Great place to bring your family. If you go past the tennis court and under the bridge it brings you to another park with a giant slide. I recommend you use the cardboard to go down the slide. Lots of fun!
  • I was surprised that any city has a park like this. There are probably 40-50 different types of rose here, all labeled. At the right time of year, it smells beautifully of fresh roses and comes alive with color. There are also nicer public restrooms available. An awesome neighborhood gem
  • The rose garden was very beautiful. We walked up here from downtown Berkeley and it was a bit of a hike but worth it. One thing was that in some places smelled like garbage. They need to do a better job of managing that. But it was a great place to go if you like looking at flowers.
  • Took some pictures here for my daughter's engagement photos. It was slightly disappointing because there wasn't any roses... very, very few. We still got good pictures, though. The park area across the street is nice.
