Welcome to the Parks Division at the City of Berkeley, CA. We are part of the Parks Recreation & Waterfront Department.

The Parks Division is home to the Landscape Maintenance, Facilities Maintenance, and Urban Forestry Units.The Landscape Maintenance Unit maintains all of Berkeley's parks, street medians, and triangles. The Facilities Maintenance Unit maintains and repairs recreation buildings, pools, sports fields, ball courts, children’s play areas, and water fountains, benches, and other park features.The Urban Forestry Unit responds to tree-related emergencies 24/7 and performs tree maintenance year round. Tree maintenance consists of pruning, removing, and planting trees; and other tree-related duties.   

Grove Park Update - The renovation at the Grove Park Tennis and Basketball Courts is nearing completion, when it will create a centerpiece for a neighborhood and a destination for our entire community. The re-vamped tennis and basketball courts will give players surfaces that are more fun to play on while also being more durable. New lighting will create a better environment for nighttime games and matches. A key feature of the renovations was to remove barriers and increase access for all people, regardless of ability - especially in the completely renovated bathroom, bleachers, doors and gates.

Make a Donation!   - Make a donation to help your favorite City park or to honor someone special!  There are five parks funds to choose from.  The funds go towards the direct cost of buying and installing everything we need to keep our parks in great shape.  This includes playground equipment, trees and landscaping, picnic tables, games and sports equipment for youth, educational supplies at the Nature Center, transportation for youth programs, and waste receptacles to help keep parks clean.  Memorial benches are another way to honor someone special.  All donations of $50 or more are tax-deductible.  For more information, contact Wanda Williams at the Parks Administration Office at (510) 981-6700, or by email at wwilliams@cityofberkeley.info, or at the City’s parks website:  http://www.cityofberkeley.info/PRW/ [more...]
