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.

Interesting to have a whole park in the city devoted to roses. Pity we arrived as the rose season was over. Lots of varieties - we must return in another season.

You must be prepared for a steep descent but can do it layers. This is a very beautiful place to be in. Roses bloom at different times and are amazing.

Really lovely place with more roses than you can easily count! A must-see for the flower loving crowd, or anyone else who wants to savor a few quiet moments in a serene local garden. Suggest you look for and smell the "Mary Rose" as it was unique and lovely!

The best time to visit the Berkeley Rose Garden is in May when the roses are in full bloom. So many varities ~ so much beauty ~ and a great view of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. I love to take a picnic lunch and sit with a good book.

I have visited the rose garden many times. It is on a hillside. Its row after row of roses that is fun to explore. It has over 3000 rose bushes. It is best in the spring when roses are in bloom, but any time of year it is nice to visit. The sunsets from here are quite nice.

Nice way to spend some time, even if you're not a particular fan of roses. Watch your step though, it's in need of repairs here and there. Parking wasn't a problem but might be during peak hours. Free to enter and free to park.
