This month, as the Berkeley Rose Garden
hits full bloom on Mother's Day
, we lament the loss of the Berkeley Rose Garden Pergola. The curving redwood trellis, originally designed by Bernard Maybeck
, final design and execution by landscape architect Vernon M. Dean
, has crowned the Berkeley Rose Garden amphitheater since its opening in 1937. According to the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association
(BAHA), The City of Berkeley will dismantle the Pergola this year but, citing budget restrictions, won't rebuild it before 2019. BAHA is raising funds to help rebuild the trellis.
