The property with Pinnacle Rock on it was donated to the City of Berkeley by Lillian Remillard Dandini in 1963. The City purchased additional acreage in 1969–1970. The interim landscape design, based on community input, was adopted in May 1969. In June 1969, $35,000 was allocated from capital Improvement Program (CIP) funds to develop a “rural park.” Informally known as Pinnacle Park, the Parks and Recreation Commission approved the dedication of Remillard Park, in memory of Lillian Dandini’s father, on October 22, 1964. The playground was constructed by community volunteers at a work party held on August 24, 1974. The park was awarded the 1975 Park Facility Citation by the California Park and Recreation Society District III for neighborhood participation in design concepts and volunteer labor.
