George Florence Park includes a play area and places to picnic in a pleasant green space.
The land for George Florence Park was purchased with Measure Y funds after voters passed a bond measure in 1974 to fund additional park development, supplemented by state SB 174 funds. The West Berkeley Neighborhood Park Committee participated in selecting the site and the design for the park, and it was dedicated at a picnic held on April 14, 1979. Originally called the Tenth Street/Addison Park, it was officially renamed after the former owner of the site. From 1979 to 1983, the Tenth Street Neighborhood Improvement Association held annual work parties to refurbish the landscaping. The park was renovated in the early 1990s.
