This is our weekly guest-blog post from the moms behind Red Tricycle, a site that focuses on the "lighter side" of parenting. Every week, they'll be bringing us their picks of stuff to do around the Bay Area with kids.
An East Bay institution, Tilden Park offers a full day of fun for the entire family, all just a hop from Berkeley’s thriving Solano area. Besides having one of the best animal farms for the younger crowd, the park packs an amazing variety of family-friendly features. From a miniature steam train to a botanical garden to a vintage merry-go-round, it’s fair to declare Tilden Park the perfect choice for any weekend outing. Expect to be happy that you brought that picnic lunch because the picnic areas framed by eucalyptus and oak groves are just what junior needs to roam around – and for you to feel like you got away from it all in the Berkeley hills.
