There are so many things to do and see in Tilden Park. Hiking, picknicking, enjoying the view. Great for children.

I heartily recommend hiking in the east bay hills all year long, particularly the Inspiration Point road through the eucalyptus grove, and then up to the peace point at the top. Also, hiking trails from the Nature Center, such as Laurel Trail.

Lake Anza in Tilden Regional Park is a beautiful unspoiled small lake. I thought the walk around the lake on Thanksgiving day would be fun and easy. Big surprise! It wasn't easy ~ parts of the trail require climbing up sides of rocks and over big tree roots. Half of the trail was marked "rough passage." I recommend bringing your... More

The animal farm is a must for families with children, take celery so they can feed the animals. The merry ground is a beauty to behold and a wonderful ride

Tilden is the at home park for people in the East Bay. Some areas that would be of regional interest are Lake Anza (a lake with a swimming section), the Carousel, and the Steam Train. Also, parts of the park are closed to vehicles and dogs part of the year (rainy season) during the newt migration which is interesting to... More

How is it possible to have this wild park right in the backyard of a major urban center? Pretty amazing. The park is great for hiking, biking, birding and picnics. Some trails bring you to stunning views of the bay, others take you through mysterious tree-shaded strolls along a creek. There is something for everyone here. It is easy to... More

Such a beautiful park and such welcomed natural space among the occasional chaos of the East Bay. Pleasant even just to drive through, and obviously wonderful to take a look at the scenery or go for a nice walk (for those of us who don't bike).

I am sooo happy to be here when I am here. Puts everything into perspective: playground for children, fun lake activities, Steam Train joys of gone-by-days of once when, Carousel to put a frozen smile on your face, and a Botanical Garden of pure delights - greenery, running water, wooden bridges, pathways going nowhere, and enough excitement to make today's...

We are lucky enough to live within walking distance of this amazing regional park, one of 65 parks run by the East Bay Regional Parks District. There is so much to do here: take the kids to see turtles and water birds (and the rare river otter!) in lovely little Jewel Lake, which is a short, kid-friendly walk from the... More
