Wear athletic shoes and bring a camera because Indian Rock will make you want to scale it and start snapping pictures immediately.
Located in the North Berkeley Hills, this park can be different things to different ages of kids. For tiny ones, like my 3 and 5 year old, simply walking up the rock stairs is a thrill. For tweens, it could be a space to find a little independence. There are loads of nooks and crannies to explore.
I was quite nervous when we first headed to the peak of the rock. My older child can be quite a space cadet and a mis-step here could be traumatic. Kids who are known flight risks might raise their parent’s heart rates beyond a level of comfort.
