University of California Botanical Garden is located within the campus of University of California Berkeley. Open to the public since 1890, this is no less than an outdoor living museum that boasts over 12,000 species of flora and fauna. The garden can be rented for private events, wedding receptions, twilight tours, summer walks and concerts.

Considered a "Top 10 Playground" by National Geographic magazine, Adventure Playground encourages kids to use their creativity to build real structures using actual tools. Designed for children seven years of age or older, younger children are welcomed to visit as long a they remain within arms length of an adult. Wear clothes you don't mind getting very stained, and bring sturdy, close-toed shoes. Additionally, a popular feature at the playground is a zip line that ends in a pile of sand. Groups of four or less children enter for free. Groups of five or more children must make reservations and pay a fee in two hour increments. Parking in the lot across the street is free.

Occupying a massive 3.64 acres, the Berkeley Rose Garden boasts over 3000 rose bushes and 250 unique rose varieties. This fragrant city park features six luscious terraces, four tennis courts, and a spectacular sunset view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Historians and architecture enthusiasts will appreciate the New Deal roots of the park's Depression-era construction, as well as the charming First Bay Tradition-styled design of the park and the surrounding residential neighborhood. The garden blooms most dramatically in mid-May.
