It has a nice view out onto the bay, and you can sit and enjoy it. This is where familys stop on an eveing walk, and cyclists in the area stop to catch their breath.

The kids will love to climb all over the rocks. Everyone will love the landscaping and peace away from the city. Just a pretty park.

This is a small park in a residential neighborhood. Great for kids to climb over huge rocks, play with each other while parents watch scared for them.

This is a local park. There are some good views from here, but it doesn't seem worth a visit for people from out of town.

This large outcropping of rock is a great perch for the end of the day. . With many levels to explore you can view the evening sky and bay from a nice elevation. I enjoyed this experience after bike riding around Berkeley during the day....More
