Designed by landscape architect LeRoy Brady, the Desert Southwest's largest rose garden, where nearly 8000 rose bushes bloom in the desert. Take time to smell the roses by taking a stroll through The Garden and view its tremendous number of vibrant colors, flower forms and growth habits. The terrace areas of the East and West gardens can be reserved for intimate settings such as weddings, music ensembles, theatrical readings, and art displays. Tours are also available.

We visited on a Summer day and it was deserted due to the heat but the place was still an oasis in the desert and a nice change from the typical desert scenery. There are so many varieties of roses and the children enjoyed reading the names. This would be particularly nice to visit in the Spring or Winter -the... More

We missed the roses by about one week, We could only imagine what this large garden looked like! The garden contains a nice tribute to our military.

There is some shade from trees. There is little else to see besides the roses. Just to be 100 characters.......

Very peaceful place to sit. I love the quiet atmosphere in the midst of a busy city center. I was drawn to the place because of a Geocache, but stayed a while to enjoy the silence. I understand that this is a popular wedding venue. Appropriate.

This is a beautiful garden. A great place to get ideas for your own plantings. The garden is very well maintained by volunteers.

I liked how beautiful all the roses are and how great they smell. Wendy does a great job taking care of the roses for the College. She is the most knowledgeable horticulturist in the valley. Great job.

It's a nice place to walk around or take some pictures; the only thing I disagree with, is where MCC let everything dry and put a new garden where the other one was.

Even though I was in the area just for geo-caching, I took some time to smell the roses. So many different varieties i never even knew existed. It was an enjoyable and educational stroll.
