Berkeley's crown jewel, Tilden has something for just about everyone. Green spaces, camping, cookouts, swimming, hiking and so on. Add to that the farm, steam trains, and carousel and you have an amazing park.

Go here for top of the mountain experience views exercise and clean air. Beaches and seafood need not be all you experience in San Franciso
