OK, full disclosure - I am a docent at the Wrigley mansion. I thought I would write a review and give some helpful information. The real attraction here is the House. It is open for public tours from February through August on Thursday afternoons at 2 pm and 3 pm. If you visit at those times you can take a... More

The outside gardens were okay, but nothing spectacular, perhaps this is due to the summer heat, but I would not make a special trip out to see the gardens unless you planned to tour the house as well.

Good historical landmark for a well known family pool of the rich and famous. It's good size house in the beautiful city of Pasadena which is now the headquarters of rose bowl event.

We booked a tour of this house and we are glad that we did. It seems like you can tour the house only on certain days so you must plan in advance. The house is beautiful holds a lot of history. They will show you a little about the parade and the history of it . It was well worth... More

Neat little spot nestled in the city with authentic charm and history. Roses are beautiful and easy to get to.

Beautiful rose gardens and gorgeous house with a wonderful informative guide.Many historic homes you are quite restricted, but in this house you were actually allowed to feel thing. If you are a football fan, the second floor has all the rose bowl memorabilia.

Loved seeing the Wrigley House inside and out and enjoyed the history tour, set up throughout the 2 story house. Also saw a short video of the history.

This is a gorgeous garden on the grounds of the Tournament of Roses house on Orange Grove Blvd. My husband and I had his 78 year old mother who doesn't like to walk a lot with us and were looking for something easy to do in Pasadena. On a whim we popped in and loved this! So many gorgeous roses... More

I was a little disappointed by this garden which really amounts to nothing more than a small test garden for roses which are laid out in rows. Not very big and not an especially attractive layout.

Im glad I took some time out to stop here. They are only open certain hours so call before you go. But it is worth taking a look at. Being orginaly from Chicago, of course I wanted to go. Even if your not it is worth looking at. It is a historic beauty
