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.   

Sports Fields - We close sports fields throughout Berkeley during the winter season to insure that the grass is green and lush for the remainder of the year. For more details, please visit Sports Fields Closures.    [more...]

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.  [more...]
