  • I love botanical gardens and this was no disappointment. The only issue is that if there is a Football game it's nearly impossible to get there any way besides walking up the hill (read: mountain). The place is massive and incredibly well maintained. It's just such a wonderful way to spend the day. From here you can wonder Berkeley and eat! Really a great place.
  • I never knew this place existed. Very friendly staff! Large grounds divided into continents, including the tropics area and a large California area. Lots of cute little hideaways for a date. Beautiful Japanese garden with the pond. Picnic tables in CA area in shady spots.
  • Beautiful garden featuring one of the bay areas best collection of low water plants. Great for kids. Be sure to check out the carnivorous plant greenhouse, the pond (in the spring it contains a large newt population), and the aloe garden.
  • A hidden treasure for anyone remotely interested in plants or nature. Easily spent 2 hrs here though we didn’t explore everything. Plants are amazing!
  • This is probably my favorite botanical gardens. They have a little of everything here, with sections of the garden categorized by geographic areas, often with the names of flowers near the flowers. Sometimes of the year there is more I'm bloom than others, like every botanical garden, but I've enjoyed my time here regardless of the time of the year. If you like taking photos of flowers this is a great spot.
