What a nice tranquil park. We walked about a mile and a half between the walkways inside and walking the sidewalks outside of the garden. The flowers are the highlight but in February the roses are not in bloom. Plenty of benches to stop and sit on if you choose. We liked it.

For a wonderfully pleasant afternoon, a visit to The San Jose Municipal Rose Garden is hard to beat, especially since it won't cost you aa penny. The vast displays of a huge variety of well attended roses in bloom is spectacular. Deep, dark hues and pale pastels abound and some, especially the vivid pink varieties, emit a strong, delicious aroma... More

A perfect place to spend a day and enjoy a picnic. Plan on taking lots of pictures, since the flowers, fountains, arbors and trees are beautiful from just about any angle. It's also very well kept-up and clean, and the roses are gorgeous!

Always a pleasure to visit this garden. It has a circular fountain pool in the middle and is fanned out from there to cover at least square block. Within you will find several dozens of different rose collections names and easily accessible via grassy paths. In each visit the place was well kept and clean. Great of wedding and flower... More

Volunteers keep the roses blooming by deadheading so there is lots of time to see the glorious display. Great for a romantic walk, a family time, a grass picnic.

The San Jose, CA Rose Garden is a marvelous way to spend part of your day as a visitor to our city. Volunteers make sure these wonderful rosebushes are kept in a state of beauty year-round. It is a very pleasant experience. I am a resident and therefore, don't visit the Rose Garden as often as I should...but when family... More
