It’s Free! Indian Rock Park

Have you ever been to Indian Rock? It is a fun, free, super local climb that is tucked away just a few minutes walk above Zachary’s on Solano. 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.

Wear athletic shoes and bring a camera because Indian Rock will make you want to scale it and start snapping pictures immediately. 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.

  1. We’re new to the area, and I’d like to take my kids there, is there an address I can program into the GPS? Even a Google maps link for a visual map would be very helpful. Thank you.

      1. Just thought I’d let you know we did visit Indian Rock, my 7 and 8 year old LOVED it and found other kids to play climbing adventures together. The view is amazing! My 20 month old also loved it, but I found it a bit nerve wracking trying to climb up and down the steps with an unpredictable toddler. I can’t wait to take my husband there to see the view! Thanks.x
