Berkeley Botanical Gardens

The University of California Botanical Garden is a 34-acre (13.7 ha) botanical garden located on the University of California, Berkeley campus, in Strawberry Canyon. The Garden is in the Berkeley Hills, inside the city boundary of Oakland, with views overlooking the San Francisco Bay. It is one of the most diverse plant collections in the United States, and famous for its large number of rare and endangered species.

The Garden was established in 1890 on the University’s central campus. It was moved to its present location in the Berkeley Hills above the main campus under the directorship of Thomas Harper Goodspeed. Its present location is also less than a mile down the road from the Lawrence Hall of Science, another renowned Berkeley Hills attraction. The Garden’s layout in Strawberry Canyon was designed by Goodspeed and fellow Berkeley professor and landscape architect, John William Gregg.

Berkeley Botanical Gardens

The Regional Parks Botanic Garden was founded on January 1, 1940. Situated in Tilden Regional Park’s beautiful Wildcat Canyon in the heart of the north Berkeley Hills, the garden is devoted to the collection, growth, display, and preservation of the native plants of California. The state is a vast region of many floral areas, such as seacoast bluffs and coastal mountains, interior valleys, arid foothills, alpine zones, and two kinds of desert. California embraces nearly 160,000 square miles – imagine 160,000 square miles of California set in a garden that can be walked in a day.
