We returned to the Berkeley Rose Garden. The view of San Francisco from the Rose Garden today was stellar. There were some roses (too early for the garden to be in full bloom) but still pleasant. There is tennis courts here as well. It is on a Berkeley hill so its a downhill walk and then uphill - where we... More

I played in the rose garden as a child, took tennis lessons at the garden as a teen, and return to the garden every year when I visit as an adult. The rose garden is well tended and has a big variety of roses growing in semi-circular beds between old stone walls. It is especially known as a place to... More

This place has the most amazing variety of roses and is good to check out for garden ideas. Wish I could bring my small dog with me. Also, don't think it's wheelchair accessible.

We like to go to this Park and sit and read. It's especially nice when the roses are blooming. Sit up high and enjoy the view.

From here you have a great view of San Francisco as well as beautiful flowers. This is also a great place to go for a run. Though the hilly terrain is challenging, it is worth the view.

This smaller rose garden is very walkable, with paths among many varieties of roses, along with benches to rest and to enjoy the view. The view is expansive: over the city of Berkeley, and across the Bay to San Francisco, Marin County and beyond. This is a nice place to bring a visitor to Berkeley, to showcase a neighborhood community... More

Berkeley’s Historic Rose Garden is a regional destination with its 3,000 rose bushes and 250 varieties of roses, along with breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.This is considered by many to be the finest rose garden in northern California. The roses are pruned in January in preparation for mid-May, when the garden is in... More

This lovely garden is tucked into a neighborhood that you might happen upon out walking. There are numerous varieties of roses, many of which are identified. With the extreme water issues, the bushes are not robust. It is not finely manicured and could use a little TLC and more volunteers. The terraced effect and art add to its visual appeal.... More

This rose garden is situated on a hill overlooking the city of Berkeley and the bay. Great views from the top. The garden itself is undergoing some improvements, which are needed. There's a nice selection of roses, but the paths are uneven and eroding and some parts of the garden are inaccessible. The sunsets, viewed from the street entrance, are... More

This rose garden is a diamond in the rough. It has tons of rose varietals and is fun to wander through. The structures are falling apart though and it really needs some TLC. However, this is one of my favorite stopping points in Berkeley - away from the crowds, quiet, peaceful, surrounded by beautiful flowers.
