“Lovely garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

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.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

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 city doesn't seem to devote many resources to the garden.

“Everything's Coming Up Roses!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

This lovely Municipal Park is a delight for all ages. My six month granddaughter just had a giggle of a time on her first trip to the Rose Garden. We are visiting from Pennsylvania and have made the trip to the Rose Garden several times. I've enjoyed the layout of this garden year round, with the walking paths, terraces, and great views, but this visit is in late May and the flowers are in full bloom and the garden is truly an earthly delight!

“Standard on my garden tours.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

May is beautiful and the roses are in the first strong bloom of the year. Garden has seen better days but still spectacular and lovely setting going down from the street. Many varieties to see, especially like the rose arbors with many unique varieties.

“A place to just sit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

You have the city views, comfortable benches, easy to maneuver steps, easy paths, fantastic variety of roses, colorful and fragrant flowers, and other friendly visitors. I love this place! A good place to bring your camera, sack lunch, or just sit and meditate! Even for a quick stop as you sight see in the Berkeley hills, it is worth it. Click if this was helpful! Thanks.
