In observance of the Alameda County Public Health Department order to shelter in place, UCBG is closed – and all programs suspended – until further notice. We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation and follow updated recommendations as they become available. Please check our website and calendar for the status of future scheduled events. We look forward to welcoming you back when we reopen.
Parking is available in a lot located across the street from the main entrance to the Garden. It is a pay lot at the rate of $1 per hour and is enforced all day. The lot is operated by UC Berkeley’s Department of Parking and Transportation.
