There did appear to be some street parking outside the park, which may be harder to find on the wknds.

This is a totally romantic spot. The roses from May into the fall are resplendent and the views are lovely. There is a marvelous arbor and if you are interested most specimens are identified. It is lovely and Berkeley folks are fortunate that they agree to spend their tax dollars to maintain it.

The Rose Garden itself is small. During the winter, the roses are cut back and not blooming - however, it is still worth visiting for the views. Cordornices Park is across the street and is a beautiful park with picnic areas, playground and hiking trails. You may want to talk Uber (for example) up to see the Rose Garden and... More

You enter the rose garden at the top of the hill, and can then walk down the terraces. It is well maintained with a variety of roses.

The Berkeley Rose Garden was divine. Einstein lived nearby for a year and came in the evenings to sit on these ancient benches to enjoy the sunsets and engage in conversations with all who came. Children can play in the creek and run up and down into the amphitheater. The adjacent tennis courts bring the pop pop sound of tennis... More

Even in winter there were a few roses in bloom. Locals come to sunset to sit and enjoy the view. Fine to bring wine.

This garden is worth the visit if you happen to be in the Berkeley. It's hard to find a rose gardens maintained by a city with competing demands on its resources. Over the years the garden has been more or less maintained, and it's roses are beautiful when blooming, and true it has seen better days, but is worth the... More

A visit to this garden is a joy at most any time of the year when the roses are blooming. The variety of roses is lovely. The view is amazing! And the general energy of the place is uplifting. Unfortunately, the garden is in major disrepair, which cannot be overlooked. Sure do wish someone would fund a complete rejuvenation of... More

Parking - on the street Cost - free Time at location - 10 mins to walk about unless you are going to sit for a while. There are plenty of benches. Gardens - ok, however, a little run down. Unless you are particularly into roses you should go to the Berkeley botanical gardens or the gardens at Merrit Lake for... More
