This is a beautiful rose garden in San Jose. The variety of roses are quite diverse. They do a good job of keeping the garden so beautiful. Its a great place to go and relax and smell the roses. its a good place to bring children as well.

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.

This is a nice old fashioned gem in the bustleing "silicon valley" . Perfect for a family outting or picknic. unless you bring some food, this will only take about an hour to enjoy. 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

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. Nevertheless, I found the place relaxing for a walk. The fountain in the center of the garden makes this place better to visit than the Heritage rose garden near the... More

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.
