About Blake Garden
Welcome to the University of California Blake Garden!
The 10.6 acre public garden with its stunning hill views of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate is located just four miles north of the Berkeley campus in the town of Kensington. Our mission is to expand and sustain a well designed outdoor environment that supports teaching and research in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Design. The garden contains a large diversity of plant materials that grow in our Mediterranean type climate and contains new and historic garden design and structures designed and built by UC professors, students and garden staff. With this, Blake Garden encourages the development of understanding and appreciation of nature in the garden environment.
