BERKELEY’s BEST Attractions

Berkeley Rose Garden  1200 Euclid Ave./Bayview Pl.  Free.  Planted at the turn of the century, this terraced garden was originally conceived as a classical Green arboretum.  It is a particular delight in late spring and summer, when the 250 varieties of rose are in full bloom.  Benches sheltered by arbors covered with climbing roses make for pleasant picnicking and provide gorgeous views of the bay and San Francisco.  Tennis courts adjoin.  The garden is a popular spot for weddings, and a knot of people is found at the top most evenings watching the sun set.

Across the street, Codornices Park is equipped with a playground, a basketball court, and a long, exciting, and potentially dangerous (be careful!) concrete slide.  Trails follow the creek and pass the oldest grove of dawn redwoods found outside of China.  Free.
