Even in winter there were a few roses in bloom. Locals come to sunset to sit and enjoy the view. Fine to bring wine.

Went on foot to Rose Garden from downtown Berkeley. It's almost hour walk up Hill. It's located on the ridge. Rose was few maybe it was not season . But view from here is good. You can see golden gate bridge.
