Tilden’s botanic garden immerses visitors in the amazing diversity of California’s herbal and floral heritage. It’s a balm for the soul that you’ll want to apply season after season. Tilden Regional Park’s botanic garden is like a theme park for nature lovers. Along its historic paths California becomes a small world, where only a few steps separate the floral wonders of the Sierra from those of the seashore. The garden is laid out in ten sections—botanic capsules of all the plant communities within the state. Rare and endangered plants from each region, as well as more common flora, have been collected and planted on these ten acres, labeled and meticulously cared for. You’ll encounter manzanita and sword fern and larkspur on your hikes in other parts of the East Bay, but here it is manicured, nurtured, and specifically identified by both its common and Latin names.
