The historic garden, which fell into disrepair, was restored to glory through various tax measures and the general fund.
They include the now-closed pier, the UC Berkeley eucalyptus grove and the tunnel between Codornices Park and the Rose Garden.
Part of Adeline Street has been completely repaved and improvements are planned on University Avenue at the marina. Live Oak Park’s community center is being rebuilt. It’s all part of T1 bond measure work underway now.
The city of Berkeley expects to spend more than $20 million in the next year on a range of ambitious infrastructure projects funded by Measure T1, a $100 million bond that won landslide support from voters in 2016.
The central part of the new pergola, or arbor, at the Berkeley Rose Garden has been rebuilt, and the curved pathway underneath is open to park visitors again. At least for now.
On Monday afternoon a small event was held to mark the ‘groundbreaking’ for Phase 1 of the Rose Garden Trellis Restoration Project.
