We visited Tilden Regional Park with our handicapped grandson on a Saturday in mid-October, 2014. Although the traffic was a bit heavy, the attractions had good handicapped parking and were not crowded. We began with the steam train. The ride on the narrow gauge train was inexpensive, fun and lasted about 15 minutes. We got lost on the drive to... More

Great place to get away from it all for an hour, or a day. Lots of trails for hiking and biking, and picnic areas, etc. I often drive through this park to get from Berkeley to Orinda, and their is lots of wildlife (deer, fox, etc.) and lots of bikers on the road taking it all in.

A delightful park for a long or short hike depending on our time and mood. Dog friendly, people friendly, wonderful view/vista, lake. What more can we ask for?

I cycle through the forested roads of Tilden two to three times a week. I also hike here regularly. The trails are well maintained. There is even a little lake to cool off on that warm summer day. I regularly took my daughter here when she was small. We'd feed the animals at the 'Little Farm', or ride the steam... More

We visited this large park in early August. We wanted to see the steam train and the little farm. Directional signs were well placed and intuitive, which is not the case with a lot of attractions. Our thought is 'It is always someone's first time' and the more direction the better. The steam train is only $3 a ride, and... More

This is a beautiful park with lots of nicely marked trails and best of all my dog can roam off leash on some of the trails. We take the trail to Lake Anza and sit beside the lake and cool ourselves (my dog in the water). There are quite a few trails that are shady so seek one out and... More

There is a lake, which is really beautiful. You can also swim there, but you have to pay for it. For what remains, nothing special. The park is not looked after very well, tall grass and broken trees are everywhere. An other nice spot is a point view on the hills, where you can see San Francisco and part of... More

Tilden Park is in the Berkeley Hills and is a wonderful place to go. We have gone several times. We have taken the train ride and the merry go round rides there. We have attended wonderful wedding receptions at the Brazil Room at the park. The Brazil room is a beautiful garden setting with both indoor and patio seating. We... More

We didn't have a map so just chose a trail to try randomly. On a dusty, hot day, we had a vigorous walk up the hillside, not all the way to the top, as we knew that on the other side was… just the other side of the mountain. A good day trip while visiting Berkeley.
