What a terrific find! A peaceful and relaxing oasis in a residential neighborhood not far from downtown. This is a nice get away for some peace and quiet in the mornings, evenings, and during the weekend. The adjacent open space is good for kite flying, frisbee and football tossing, and simply relaxing in the grass.

It's free to take photos there. There's a beautiful fountain. The flowers are all blooming in May. It's spacious. I would definitely come here again :)

Lovely roses to walk through and even sport fields. It's a nice garden. Not sure I'd go out of my way to go there, I live in the neighborhood.

The Rose Garden is beautiful and well worth the visit, especially if you like roses and even if you aren't particularly interested in roses! The garden contains a wide variety of roses - in a wide variety of colors. In fact, I'd be surprised if there was a rose color that the garden didn't have! There is a good chance... More

We visited the garden with our two children and enjoyed the lovely variety of roses. The garden is flat and easy to walk around, and restrooms are available as well as open space to play, picnic, etc. There was ample street parking around the garden, and we enjoyed walking around this quiet residential neighborhood as well.

This is a beautiful little garden in Dana Avenue. I live 10 mins away from this place and love to visit as often as possible. The garden is well maintained and the volunteers work hard to clean the garden, deadhead roses and keep the blooms fresh and full. There are few picnic tables at the corner of the garden. Clean...

This rose garden is exceptional. It dates from the late 1890's and is fascinating to walk among the different rose beds with the years they were planted. There is a lovely fountain and plenty of areas to have a special picnic.

The smell of the rose garden is wonderful. We walked here from the Winchester house. The roses are lovely. It was a great place to relax after our long walk. There are benches all around or you can relax in the grass

Saw the review on Trip Advisor and decided to go. Easy to get to by car with plenty of free street parking. The roses were awesome!
