Blake Garden of the University of California, Berkeley, is 10.6 acre public garden with stunning hill views of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate. The mission is to expand and sustain a well- designed outdoor environment. The garden is managed as a teaching facility by the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning (LAEP).
Blake Garden encourages the development of understanding and appreciation of nature in the garden environment. The garden contains a large diversity of plant materials that grow in our Mediterranean-type climate and contains new and historic garden design and structures designed and built by UC Professors from the College of Environmental Design, students, and the garden's staff.
The property includes the Blake House, currently designated as the residence for the president of the University of California.
