The ride uphill was OK. Parking was a little hard to find but the views going up were great. Having lunch in such a beautiful place was peaceful. Made me very lazy and not want to move. I didn't either!.

Tilden has everything. Natural beauty; many many lovely picnic groves; steam trains; a great botanical garden with everything from succulents to redwoods; a place to see farm animals; even a merry-go-round. Something for all ages. Our family loves to go there.

The cost is $3 pp which is very reasonable. The ride took almost 15 minutes around well maintained redwood forest. The train... More

Tilden is a hidden gem with lots of things to do and easily accessible within the Berkeley mountains, a mere 7 minutes drive from downtown Berkeley. The little farm is home to cows and calves, goats and sheep, rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese, rams, turkeys and a ginormous pig. Bring lettuce or celery and see them running toward your group for...

Tilden Regional Park is a place to return to many times. We live close so it is easy for us to take the children there many times. Children can feed celery and lettuce to the goats, cows, and sheep. There are pigs, turkeys, rabbits, and chickens. The merry-go-round is a popular place and the concession stand is always busy. There... More

This local park has everything: hiking, swimming and biking, as well as acres of parkland to play, picnic and enjoy. It is a family favorite and worth joining for the summer months.

My weekly hike. Suffice it to say that I middle-named my dog Tilden just so we could memorialize this haven that keeps on giving us peace and adventure

Altho situated on the eastern periphery of East Bay cities (e.g., Berkeley, El Cerrito, Oakland, etc.), its proximity rates it as an urban park (formally, Regional Park) Wonderful environment, including one of the world's best carousels (summer), swimming lake, horse riding, miniature steam railroads, small but great animal farm, numerous picnic areas/tables and grills, and innumerable hiking paths; many scenic...

This place is dear to my heart! I lived in Berkeley for ~ 8 years and would regularly hike the Sky View trail. You can meander for hours and not get bored. The air smells nice, the views are amazing. I highly recommend it for short and long excursions.
