BERKELEY MUNICIPAL ROSE GARDEN
Established in 1937, the Berkeley Municipal Rose Garden was a Civil Works Administration Project and today is considered by many to be the finest rose garden in northern California. Its location offers views of the city, San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate. Over 3,000 plants of a hundred varieties of roses grow on the terraces, which form an amphitheater. Cordornices Creek runs through the park, which is bordered by groves of coastal redwoods and live oaks. The Rose Garden includes a 220-foot-long redwood pergola, plantings of All-American rose selections and roses from all over the world. .
