This is such a beautiful place right in the heart of Berkeley. So many beautiful roses. Just walk around and take in God's beauty. There are a few steps to climb but just pace yourself. The first time I went there it was earlier in the year and the flowers were a little less burnt out. Suggest you go late... More

Well cared for gardens traverse multiple levels. Many places to sit and relax. Such a beautiful place to sit and meditate or leisurely walk around and let your spirit drink in the sweet sights and sounds and smells of nature. So close yet you will feel worlds away from city life.

Whether you're partial to roses or not, you can't beat the views from the Berkeley Rose Garden. It's the perfect place in the city for catching the sunset with spectacular views of the Bay including the Golden Gate Bridge. Of course, in season, the roses are breathtaking. But it's also a good starting point for a walk up Euclid St.... More

Designed as a tiered amphitheatre and commanding a view of the Bay, in spring the Rose Garden is gorgeous. Roses of many many many varieties and colors fill the eye and nose with a profusion of color and fragrance. The Garden is so beautiful that it has become a place where newly married couples come to have their official photos... More

This lovely rose garden is in an unusual, very beautiful setting. It's located in a large, natural bowl. The bowl has been terraced, so there are about eight levels of plantings. The gardens are spotlessly clean, the roses are well-labeled, and there are many benches. The only drawback is that the paths are uneven, and it's a deep, deep bowl.... More

the garden is wonderful and very serene. its small so it's not worth a special trip. well worth a stop if out for a hike in the very appealing neighborhood.

It's not extremely well laid out, and it's just roses and roses, but still it's a lovely place to take in the views and stop and smell the roses.

This year we got to the garden when the roses were pretty much on the wane, but it is always enjoyable to stroll around the garden. I love the varieties of roses they feature and the way they are displayed in a large amphitheater sort of arrangement with a view of the bay from the top.

The rose garden is beautiful and there are lovely views across the bay. The amphitheater style is interesting and works well for exhibiting the roses. The garden needs some upkeep. While the plants are clearly well cared for, overall the garden could use some updating and the hard surfaces some general repairs. Some areas have more weeds than flowers. The... More
