“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great hikes but you can also drive to amazing views if someone in the party is not physically able to hike. Some of the park is dog friendly. We love Lake Anza. it has a small beach for family swimming and you can take your dog to the side and let them swim too (it is away from the beach).

Kids will love the steam trains and the merry-go-round. There is also a gold course up there, though I don't golf. Many people get married in the Brazilian Room there, which is lovely. There is also a botanical garden. The park is a treasure.

“Beautiful garden in Berkeley Hills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

My friend and I were going for a drive and wandered to this garden yesterday, at the Tilden Regional Park, close to UC Berkeley. We found a seeming garden of paradise--a well taken care of garden with native Californian plants. With many interlocking paths, small bridges, and creeks, we felt we had stumbled upon something special.
