Tilden features a wide range of hiking trails with stunning views of the Bay. You can choose an easy or challenging hike as strikes your fancy. Lake Anza is great for swimming, particularly early in the morning when there are not crowds and the mist is still moving over the surface of the water. It's great to have this space... More

Tilden Park is a great place to have fun, relax, bring the kids or explore on your own. The reason is that it is connected to the entire East Bay Parks system which is a collection of some of the most beautiful secluded, forested park areas in the country. Without a doubt. Be sure to do your homework in the... More

We have been on a few trails throughout the park. There are a ton of trails. It's good exercise and the views are nice. As for Lake Anza, it's really dirty with algae, so I wouldn't go near it.

What a great few days I've had in this park. Insane hills above Berkeley and Oakland. Great park! I went to a wedding in the park and it was perfect. Great public spaces. GREAT rangers and employees. Highly recommended for families and adventure seekers.

We attended a family wedding in the park on Memorial Day. The park is high in the Berkeley hills, with plenty of space for recreational activities and get-togethers. Very lush foliage, at least that time of year, and beautiful views of the bay as you drive from the park to sea level.

Hike rustic trails for dramatic views of SF Bay or the Contra Costa hills, hike along Wildcat Creek for a shady trail on a hot day, swim in Lake Anza, which is clean, cold, and has a fine sandy beach (and cold water showers for afterwards and visit the Little Farm with little ones. Tilden Park has a bit of... More

If the merry-go-round is running it is so much fun, The Steam train is a great treat for children. There are interesting walking trails and a lot of nature to see.

Tilden Park in the heart of Berkeley is a perfect escape close to everything for family outings. Great picnic areas and lots of grassy areas for running and ball playing or throwing frisbees. Easy access and an ideal spot for a quick getaway.n

Tilden Regional Park is in our back yard. It is a great place for a quiet hike, for seeing all types of wildlife, and for accessing some great views of the entire Bay Area. There is some excellent mountain biking from the parking area near the Little Farm -- at the base of Canon Drive and Central Park Drive. All... More
