The Regional Parks Botanic Garden is an exquisite free park (and free parking if there is any left) up above the Berkeley hills, on winding streets that just dare you to try to find the top. Divided into multiple sub-gardens the Botanic Garden boasts statuesque sequoias and redwoods in its relatively small acreage, and many plants and flowers that result... More

California has many different climates and soils. Here in one spot one can experience many of them, from desert to mountains, from streamside to forest, from seashore to meadow. It is of great interest in any season, but I like it best in early Spring with mist or a light rain. Trails are easy to navigate and the entire garden... More

Spent an afternoon wandering the Botanical gardens. Very well laid out. I was amazed at the number of plants and how well they were taken care of. If you want to go for a nice walk or if you garden at all, you will enjoy the time spent at the gardens.

I've explored Tilden Botanical Garden on two different field trips (I'm studying Horticulture) and I plan to go back on my own. Everything is so clearly labeled and organized that someone could learn a lot about California's plants in a few hours. Even if you are not a student, it's a great place to enjoy a beautiful garden in a... More
