Beautiful preserved area with lots to do. We had a little trouble navigating the area. Wish we had gotten more park info ahead of time. There are a lot of things to do. But some were not open when we were there. Swimming area was lots of fun. Next time we will plan to spend more time there.

Nice hikes and mountain biking (if you can manage the ride up the hill to reach it!) close to city and a peaceful spot to wander and exercise.

We stumbled into this state park, driving uphill from the Berkeley Marina. It was a beautiful day and a nice park with several overlooks and a lake area. Lots of hiking and several picnic areas.

In the Berkeley hills, where you would need to inform in advance, what you would like to do: Hiking? Cycling? swimming in Lake Anza? Golf? A little farm?Camping? Definitely you need a car to get there and moving around. Or a wedding to organize? The park offers you plenty of options in a green space. I cannot highly recommend it... More

So much to choose from here...hiking by Jewel Lake, sunbathing and swimming at Lake Anza, walking to Inspiration Point to,see views of the SF Bay, ambling through a botanical garden, taking the kids to the Little farm and feeding carrots & celery to the goats, and even riding the carousel or steam trains. You can spend a lovely afternoon here... More

Beautiful, quiet. Lots of small wild life roaming free. Trails that lead off the regular path. Great place to relax, have a picnic, read a book.

Very pleasant park areas with plenty to do and good walks for both families and other groups - large and small. The warning of how to deal with mountain lion encounters adds a certain frisson

What a great place to experience Bay Area natural beauty. Many miles of hiking with incredible views of SF, bridges, bay, etc. A swimmable lake, lots for kids to do also.
