I first went to Tilden Park several years ago for a wedding, and thought it was beautiful. Visiting again in December let me explore a lot of areas I didn't see before. It's huge, so there's a lot to see. We walked around, saw lots of runners and bikers, solo couples and families alike. If you have some free time... More

We enjoyed visiting Tilden Park and Lake Anza. In the winter, there are no crowds. Need GPS top get there and back to the city.

Tilden Park is practically the 'backyard' for so many bay area residents with good reason. Besides the hiking trails and nature areas, there is a lot to enjoy. We like the Redwood Valley Railroad miniature train rides. At $3/ride per adult, the ride is a good value, about 15 minutes long and your pet is welcome on board. Also the... More

We enjoyed walking the trails in Tilden Park. They were well maintained and provided scenic views. There was some uphill hiking, which was good for our cardio workout.

This is a good scenic park up in the Berkeley Hills with multiple fun activities for the kids. We didn't get a chance to explore all the various attractions but sampled a few and will be back later for more. There are some good views from the park and Lake Anza within the park is worth a visit too.

This was always the family's favorite outing when kids were little. It offers a lot of things to do for the kids and adults. It was here when I first had my "pink popcorn", miniature train ride, animal farm, even horse rides. It is still is an awesome place even to this day.

This is a very large, exceptional park in the Hills just East of Berkeley. A great place to spend a day. You can get public buses in downtown Berkeley. This Park was created by the PEOPLE of the EAST BAY during the GREAT DEPRESSION of the 1930s. They bought all of the land from the numerous water companies, during one... More

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.
