This rose garden is a must see. The setting is beautiful & peaceful. The roses are gorgeous! No dogs are allowed inside but you can walk your dog around the outside where roses are climbing on the rought iron fence. This is a gem of a park in San Jose.

The Rose Garden is beautiful when the roses are in full bloom from April to October. It's easy to find and the parking are on the street, plentiful around the garden. There is no entrance fee. People have picnic there, take wedding pictures and prom pictures. You can even have your wedding ceremony there, very romantic. The fragrant of roses... More

We live in the rose garden & we have a chance to pass by & visit it regularly. Its the size of a city block & you often will see people running around the rose garden or walking their dogs around. Inside is a great park atmosphere that the community helps maintain. Come enjoy the beauty of the rose garden... More

The garden is clean and well kept although I found some wilted rose bushes. We came here in the summer, and of course, the roses could not withstand the heat.

There were lots of roses in full bloom when we visited here this summer, and they were maintained pretty well. There is also a green open area where kids were throwing a football around or playing with a frisbee. It is very calming to walk around the roses and take in some of nature's beauty. Definitely worth a visit!

If you have a nose for scent this leisurely adventure is for you ! The rose gardens are well kept and very clean. There is an expansive park for a picnic lunch. The water fountain in the middle adds character. Very nice way to spend an afternoon.

The volunteers did a great job: they are so kind and the garden has a huge variety of beautiful roses with also good descriptions. There's also a fountain and some benches. I really enjoyed my time in it.

This is a walk in heaven. I want to get married here! Amazingly kept roses, bursting with fragrance. Beautifully kept grounds with a large are of redwoods lining the perimeter where ceremonies often are. There's also a large lawn so you can easily enjoy picnics and family outings. At the center of the garden is a beautiful fountain. Pure tranquility.... More

I live near here and love to come by and see the blooms. There are always new species and plenty of color. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind.
