Berkeley Way Mini-Park has areas for both toddlers and school-age children to play.

Berkeley Way Mini-Park was built with HUD funds as well as local Capital Improvement Program (CIP) funds. On November 16, 1974, it was dedicated to the public, and in 1975, it received the 1975 Park Facility citation from the California Parks and Recreation Society, District III, for neighborhood participation in design concepts and volunteer labor. The park was completely renovated in 2001 due to age, heavy use, and vandalism.

  • Tot play area with a block climber, a slide, a pilot panel, a see-saw, and tot (bucket) swings.
  • Turf that serves multiple functions
  • Play panels, an overhead net climber, a vertical net climber, a spiro-slide, an overhead track slide, a corkscrew climber, a wave climber, and belt swings are all part of the school-age play area.

This is a nice neighborhood playground for children aged 2 to 6. During those years, a small play structure for toddlers was greatly appreciated, as was a larger slide as they grew older.

The children’s area is completely enclosed and includes benches for adults or snack breaks. Because there is a lot of sand, bring sand toys to make the most of your time at the park.

Because this is a neighborhood park, there are no restrooms.

Mini Park is an apt name given that it is literally a large square of grass. A water fountain is available for both humans and dogs. There was nowhere to sit except for some massive boulders by the fence next to the playground.

The park has a small grass field and a playground with two structures built on sand. It’s close to a bike path and a chicken coop. There is a water fountain and some shade.

A park is an open space area that is normally owned and managed by the local government for recreational purposes. Parks are an important part of urban infrastructure, providing opportunities for physical activity, gathering and socializing for families and communities, and providing a simple respite. According to research, people who exercise in green spaces benefit their mental health more. It is critical for the public’s physical and mental well-being to provide activities for people of all ages, abilities, and income levels.
