Boasting 250 varieties of roses, 3,000 rose bushes, a remodeled vista point, and a 220-foot Mediterranean pergola, the Berkeley Municipal Rose Garden offers visual delights for photo hounds and casual loungers alike. While mid-May is the best time to see the roses in their showstopping glory, panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay are visible year round. Traipse down the stone-terraced amphitheater to play at the foot of babbling Codornices Creek, or meander over to Codornices Park across the street and enter through the tunnel for a wheelchair accessible route. Tennis courts are available for those seeking athletic, rather than aesthetic, recreation, and expect to see happy brides and grooms exchanging vows in the summer months.March 4, 2012 Like Add a Comment
