TILDEN REGIONAL PARK
One of the District's three oldest parks, Tilden has been called the jewel of the system, and its recreational activities have become a happy tradition for generations of East Bay youngsters. From a carousel ride and a picnic to a swim at Lake Anza and a stroll through the Botanic Garden, Tilden has variety to delight everyone. Yet there are plenty of quiet places in Tilden's 2,079 acres to shelter the wildlife and preserve natural beauty. Tilden was named for Charles Lee Tilden, first president of the Park District Board of Directors. The park is reached via Canon Drive, Shasta Road, or South Park Drive, all off Grizzly Peak Boulevard in Berkeley.

Planned to go fishing with Jonnie but we forgot that Daylight saving time started today, so we were running late. Jonnie said it was too late to go fishing, so we didn't go to Fremont.
But, we were set to spend some time with nature, so Pangga gathered our stuff and we went to Tilden Park instead. We hiked to Jewel Lake and then hiked some more through Sylvan Trail. After that, we went to "Little Farm" and met the farm animals. We were getting hungry, so we went to Indian Camp, set camp, rested and grilled our hotdogs. We definitely had a fun day.
