George Florence Park is now open after a very lengthy renovation project, construction was completed during the time of the pandemic closure of playgrounds. The park offers a large, flat grass area for running around or setting up a blanket with two play structure areas: one for tots (2-5 years old) and one for big kids (5-12).
The tot lot is fully enclosed with a fence, so it’s a great place for keeping an eye on multiple toddlers or bringing your preschooler when you have a new baby in tow.
The tot lot features a plastic slide, some interactive play panels, bucket-style swings, a covered structure for playing clubhouse or store, and a modern climbing structure. Bring toys to enjoy the sandbox area (but scan it for cat poop, first!)
Capacities are posted at both playgrounds.
The area for older kids is not fenced. It features a tall slide and a modern climbing structure. This is an urban park, set close to the street and other buildings.
Located at Tenth Street between Allston Way and Addison Street, the park occupies about a half-acre of space in Southwest Berkeley. There are no bathrooms on site.
