Blake Garden is an 11-acre Italianate-design botanic public garden which is used as a laboratory for the landscape and architecture department at UC Berkeley. There are many easy paths throughout the gardens with glorious flower beds, redwood trees, ponds, and places to sit and enjoy. The Garden has nearly 1500 plant species, over 50 bird species, as well as spectacular views of the Bay. We will return monthly to see the changes that develop as spring and summer progress.

Where to meet:  We will meet in the car park area, 70 Rincon Road, Kensington.

What to bring:  Good shoes for walking, layered clothing for variable weather, water.

Directions: From the Marin Circle, take Arlington Road going North 1.9 miles to Rincon Road. The Garden is on your left.

AC transit 7 bus, which stops at El Cerrito del Norte BART, runs every half hour and stops at the Kensington Library opposite Rincon Road, a less-than-10-minute walk to the garden.
