Berkeley's crown jewel, Tilden has something for just about everyone. Green spaces, camping, cookouts, swimming, hiking and so on. Add to that the farm, steam trains, and carousel and you have an amazing park.

Lots to see and do. Just sitting and looking into the distance was perfect! Too bad the steam train area isn't open during the week. The gardens are amazing!
