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.

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

It's currently under some type of renovation and construction (September 2016), but when the roses are blooming the place is beautiful. Perfect for a leisurely afternoon stroll. The names of the roses are sometimes very amusing to read. The streets in the surrounding area are slightly hilly, but lovely residential neighborhoods.

Located in the middle of a nice and wealthy neighborhood with huge and ancient trees. If you visit the municipal rose garden is ok., always climbing or descending, but if you go to the left side there is a walk in a deep forest like, and you cross little bridges made of wood., without pave , nice and peaceful ....

Though in all fairness the site is apparently about to begin a rehab process such as re-building the pergola. Still, the roses looked in pretty bad shape in a month where they should have been thriving.

Public gardens of this quality are quite rare. The Berkeley Municipal Rose Garden is a really nice place to walk around, enjoy the outdoors, and the odor of hundreds/thousands of roses. Totally free admission.

with views of the bay and a variety of roses in bloom, what's not to like...it's quiet and lovely and a great place for a relaxing stroll or to just sit quietly and contemplate. a discovery place in berkeley and never too crowded. wheelchair accessible and free.

We just love it here and have been bringing our kids for years and years. It's peaceful, beautiful, a little oasis of calm in a busy urban world. This is our special go-to place to watch the sunset across the Bay.
