Indian Rock Park is a 1.18-acre (4,800 m2) public park at 950 Indian Rock Avenue in the city of Berkeley, California, on the slope of the Berkeley Hills. It is located in the northeast part of the city, about two blocks north of the Arlington/Marin Circle, and straddles Indian Rock Avenue. The central feature of the park is a large rock outcropping on the west side of Indian Rock Ave. The larger portion of the park, on the opposite side of the street, has several much smaller rock outcroppings, grass fields, and a small barbecue and picnic area. The rock is composed of Northbrae rhyolite.

  • It's an easy climb uo the rock as long as you're not wearing dress shoes. Once on top, people tend to have muted, pleasant conversations. A few people will have a smoke, but everyone is mindful of...

  • The park is small, and there's not so much to do other than climbing the rock and seeing the view. But nice view and fun to climb up.

  • What a gem! Super cool area tucked into a residential area. We visited close to sunset on a Sunday and the top of the rock was speckled with small groups enjoying the view. And what a view! Perfect view of the SF skyline and the Bay and Golden Gate Bridges. There are steps carved most of the way up and down and lots of folks climbing and scrambling everywhere else. Great for all ages!
  • Beautiful and amazing. ❤️ Please be careful when going up the rock steps but when you get to the top it is breathtaking to see Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, the famous SF bridge, so much all in one place. Up there I was totally high on life feeling hopeful and grateful, grounded in the present and looking to the future. Please check it out and for the sake of this beautiful rock if you see any trash or garbage pick it up and toss in the near by bins. I had a chance to do that and immediately felt a connection with this special rock and Mother Earth. Together we can 💪❤️💪
