  • Was driving by the Berkeley Rose Garden. Had to stop for the gorgeous view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Since it is winter, there aren't many flowers in bloom. However, it is still a beautiful place to stop and enjoy the scenery and smell the roses.. There were many families and joggers nearby. Take the time to enjoy what mother nature has to offer.
  • Such a beautiful selection of roses. Well kept garden. There was some construction, but now it's clear. Best time is late spring, early summer, but there are always some roses in bloom throughout the year. Great view of the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance from the top.
  • lots of roses and quite a good selection too. great place to watch the sunset from a bunch of different locations. It looks like they finished the construction on some of the extended features of the garden making it a nicer place to be overall.
  • Great place for photoshoot or place to meditate. The view from the top is a masterpiece and the place after it rains looks like a heaven. A garden of Eden in the heart of Berkeley. Good place for a picnic or a date. Weird wooden bridges but overall great place.
  • Great park, beautiful views. Kids playground is one of the best. Tennis courts clean and well maintained.
