  • Both of the Botanical Gardens in Berkeley are excellent, the university one and this Regional Parks one. Very, very crowded and well used. Lots of great trails. Good for the entire family.  more »
  • A lot of amazing plants-trees, flowers, Lichen, we met here. As well as many birds and even lizards. Very nice Park, entrance was free. Parking across the street. Recommend that you do not miss out and relax there with friends or family.
