This is a free and self guided stop. Take a walk through the nearby neighborhoods to enjoy the Spanish architecture and pristine university homes. The Garden is gorgeous and just a relaxing walk through amazing flowers!

While chatting it up over breakfast at Bills Cafe in San Jose, a local said I had to go see the roses now in bloom at the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden. I had some time on my hands so I was asking people what I could do for the day that didn't involve shopping LOL. The rose garden is... More

This is a local gem of a rose garden that is beautiful during much of the year. I've been both in spring and in summer and it's been beautiful both times. This is a rose garden and you will find many varieties and colors. A nice place for a stroll, a picnic or fun pictures.

April and May are great times to go. Don't rush, read the signs, learn a little bit about roses and the different kinds. You'll be inspired... More

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
