Absolutely beautiful when the flowers are in full bloom. Many variety of roses. The best time to visit is during the February Rose Festival for the flowers and to watch the people.

This needs a day for itself if you're interested in roses. Summer is not the best time to see it in full bloom, but it must be great in cooler conditions and again worth the time if the interest is in flowers, bird life and people.
