Regional Parks Botanic Garden is located in Tilden Regional Park's beautiful Wildcat Canyon in the heart of the Berkeley Hills, Berkeley, California.
The Regional Parks Botanic Garden is devoted to the collection, growth, display, and preservation of the native plants of California. Imagine 160,000 square miles of California set in a 10-acre garden that can be walked in a day!
Notable among the many specimens that have been brought in from all corners of the state are representatives of nearly all the state's conifers and oaks, a very good collection of wild lilacs (Ceanothus species), and probably the most complete collection of California manzanitas to be found anywhere. There are also expanding collections of Californian native bunchgrasses and aquatics, and representatives of about 300 taxa that are classified in the California Native Plant Society's landmark study, Inventory of Rare and Endangered Vascular Plants of California.
