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.

This is located at the north end of the campus and visible from the road that forms The North boundary of the campus. It is surprising large and maintained mostly by volunteers. It has large variety of roses, which are beautiful and well cared for.

while in the area we got out and walked through the rose garden. There is a lot of construction in the area right now so its not as tranquil as one would prefer. the roses themselves were in good shape but there was just somewhat of a randomness to everything. in all fairness, we will go back by when all...

This very large free rose garden is a great place to visit. There are always wonderful roses in bloom and it is a great place to find roses that grow well in the desert. They even have it set up so you can do an audio tour using your cell phone to get more information on the garden and roses.

One of the greatest attractions in the entire Phoenix/East Valley. Thousands of beautiful rose bushes, spectacular in the spring, and again after the cooler weather in the fall. Well worth taking the time to visit even in the heat of Arizona summer. Each bed of roses has a sign with code that you can enter into your cell phone, and... More

The roses were absolutely beautiful. They do a great job maintaining the grounds - you can go at any time during the day any day of the week.

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

Can be viewed from Southern Ave. Dobson Ranch has a small nice rose garden if you continue in your car and head west then turn left/south on Dobson Rd. it is on your right as you pass Baseline. See them both in one swoop. Parking is another story for... 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.
