This is a terrific park on the hillside with excellent views of the Bay. But come here when the roses are in bloom, June or July to see a riot of color and to learn about lots of varieties of roses,

Not many people know about this place and that makes it so attractive. Great for taking a date, or just wonder alone, enjoy the roses, the view, and the simple architecture of the terraces.

Go in the springtime to catch the garden at its most magnificent state. A real gem on a hillside with views of the Bay Area. An amazing collection of roses.

Yes, view of golden gate bridge on a clear day is super. Yes, having an accomplished violinist stop by and do his practice hour was fantastico. Yet, the appearnce of the garden neeeding some serious loving care was not inspiring. Apparently, there are few volunteers...More

Take the H shuttle at the Bart station in Berkeley. Ask if it is the one going to the gardens.
