North Berkeley with some challenges for Parking, if you are not living there. Great place for kids to climb ... I always get close to heart attack, when I see him climbing at the very top. Come close to sunset and get impressed.

A gem of a neighborhood park-small but with lots of character. The rock outcroppings are most dramatic at sunset.

Make sure go there at least 15 minutes before sunset to get a good piece of the rock to watch sunset. You can see Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, downtown San Francisco and San Francisco Bay. Very romantic! However, it takes some effort to climb up this huge rock.

amazing view! theres a picnic area to eat and a park to play across from the amazing rock and its view of the Bay. you can explore the cavern and the rock by climbing or walking its steep steps on its side or center... i usually go for the July 4th Fireworks, when am not in the city, visiting friends...

If you are in the neighborhood (North Berkeley) -- and the weather is clear -- you might enjoy visiting this tiny park, which consists mainly of one huge boulder. Steps cut in the rock will take you to the top, although the short trip is not for the faint-hearted. From the top, you can see San Francisco, Marin County, Golden... More

A lovely spot to bring friends, family, date, kids, dogs, out of town visits - plenty to explore and discover both in the park and throughout the surrounding neighborhood. The bouldering is fun, with a range of problems from easy to hard. Flat ground, no pad required for the lower problems but you may want one for the higher stuff.

A good place to go climbing. You can boulder and top-rope. The views are great too. Not that many routes, and pretty low key, but a good place to practice.

Once you climb to the top, the view is magnificent. The rock itself is very unusual. It is a beautiful spot to see the sunset over the bay. Very romantic. Lots of young couples spend some precious moments sitting on the rock and enjoying the romantic view.

Nice place to bring friends and enjoy the sunset view. Kids love climbing on the rocks but they can be slippery so be careful. One of my favorite places to watch multiple fireworks displays on the 4th of July... but get there early because it can get crowded, too.

A beautiful rock park, stairs cut into the side of rock. This is the best 3 bridge view in Berkeley.
