Very well keep in a nice neighborhood, we didn't want to fight the interstate traffic with the few hours of down time we had left in San Jose.

Beautiful formal rose garden in the city. Right down the street from the heritage garden, 2 completely different focuses. The Municipal garden is a more formal display, with green lawn separating formal, trimmed beds. A wonderful place for photos. The heritage garden focuses on the roses in a more natural state, many heritage varieties.

I'm a big fan of roses, and this garden is very well kept up. A wonderful place for a picnic. There is no playground for kids, so I think they would be bored quickly. Don't forget your camera!

It is always beautiful at the Rose Garden whether or not the roses are in bloom. Very relaxing and a great place for kids to play.

The Municipal Rose Garden is an amazing place. You will see the loveliest of roses and you might happen upon the resident ducks as well, as they enjoy the local fountain. Stroll the grounds and you will want to return, I guarantee it! I visit every chance I can get, and have probably been there close to a dozen times... More

This garden is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. It's so easy to get around and see all of the beautiful flowers (and there are a TON). All different colors and types of roses can be found and it's a great place to just sit and relax.

This is one of the most beautiful rose gardens in all of Northern CA. It is kept in beautiful order by a host of volunteers. In the Spring and Summer it is a riot of color and you can relax on a shady bench, take a walk through the area and smell the wonderful sweet smell of blooming roses. A... More
