Re: “Joseph Knowland State Arboretum and Park

This all sounds like someone or a small group's pet project to get a restaurant built with a view. I suspect hidden motivations and not for the overall good for the public.

This is the same mentality shown be the City when they tried to re do the Chabot Golf course and re route and rebuild a club house restaurant with a view

Re: “Jean Sweeney Open Space Park

This place is going to be the best thing to ever hit Alameda. I can't wait to see what gems this huge piece of land eventually will offer to the community, all in the spirit of Jean Sweeney. I'm waiting for a community garden with garden plots and demonstration gardens, an urban orchard, classroom space for teaching about nature/urban farming/permaculture, bike trails, hiking trails, frog pond, play areas, open space with oaks, birdsong, quiet. May it all unfold in due time without a hitch.

Re: “Shadow Cliffs Regional Park

Bro this is the best place ever the water is separated by shallow and deep by ropes. Love to the people who made this. Although I want to know is there any bears at night or not?

Re: “Point Isabel Regional Shoreline

After moving to the East Bay, I thought nothing could match Fort Funston - until I met Point Isabel. The views are totally different and breathtaking. I went from the coastline at Funston to the span of the Bay overlooking San Francisco and being able to see at least 3 bridges at all times - all while my pup romps around off leash with other (mostly) well behaved dogs and awesome owners.

Re: “Morcom Rose Garden

I hope I,m in the right place, or was. I lived on Piedmont Ave while attending CCAC (Now CCa), in Oakland, and my room-mate & I wandered off and found ourselves in this beautiful Garden of roses. We were looking for Mary B. Best's Ice cream 'hideaway'. We -being art students-were 'lost' for hours. What a wonderful way to lose the day. I believe we tried to find it several more times, only to be successful once. This was in 1978 or 1979, so perhaps we were sniffing too much 'rose dust'. I hope it was real, as this 'roasis' was just a few blocks from several major roadways. One our best college memories!

Re: “Berkeley Rose Garden

The Berkeley Rose Garden is one of the most visited sites in Berkeley and not to be missed any time of the year. The event promises to be one of the most gratifying and fun filled event of the year. Do not miss it.

Re: “Codornices Park

I was impressed by what an excellent play/performance art this was. The cast members were all very engaging. The story is the Sumerian version of the classic Persephone myth but they made it fresh and compelling. Some of the interactive pieces worked and some fell flat; one based around writing & leaving personal memories inside the shrine of Inanna was very moving to me. I had zero expectations and was very pleasantly surprised. This company has a lot of talented people.

Re: “University of California Botanical Garden

This is in error. The Garden is NOT open this evening.

Re: “Morcom Rose Garden

The Morcom Rose Garden is Oakland's Crown Jewel. This beautifully restored public garden is an American Rose Society accredited garden due to the hard work of Oakland Park employee Tora and her staff and hundreds of dedicated volunteers. The Dead Headers have put in many, many hours of dead heading those rose plants and they can always use more help.

The Morcom is a city treasure that belongs to all of us. So get out there and enjoy the beauty it has to offer. What a great place for a leisurely stroll, to sit and visit, read a book, do some sketching and just soak in the fragrant scents of thousands of roses.
