The rose garden is good, if you like flowers , you may want to take a walk and see, and if the weather's good , sit there on the grass for a while, but I would not really recommend that , since its quite a deserted place, so it seems. you may just see the garden and come back. there's... More

Try and find out when the roses are in bloom, best time of year to go. But even if not blooming, nice place to relax or take a snack.

The setting is peaceful considering its proximity to the freeway and major highways. The roses are so beautiful and the gardens and grounds so well kept it's easy to get relaxed into the atmosphere of the place so that little else matters. A wonderful place to go for a casual walk, a picnic, or just to clear one's head.

Not many roses in blossom. Big dissapointment. Maybe wrong season? Very dry weather for long. The walk along the river and the park also not nice ae all.

It's easy to forget to stop and smell the roses in such a big and busy city like San Jose. This garden offers a refreshing escape from the hustle bustle with lots of different roses. It's conveniently located nearby downtown, and is a great place to take a walk after a meal.

We spent a couple of hours on a nice September morning.... The flowers were in full bloom. I never knew there were so many varieties at this one place.

Heritage Rose Garden is a very nice rose garden in San Jose. It has so many different types of roses, all with their distinct and amazing rose aromas. The colors are fantastic. There is a green arae around the garden as well for a picnic. Oftentimes, we see wedding couples taking wedding pictures here due to the breathtaking gardens. The... More

What a surprise to find the Rose Garden so near the Rosacrucian Egyptian Museum ! Every rose you can imagine. Bring a picnic and enjoy the view, but then take a walk around and literally smell the roses; some are spicy and others are sweet.

If there is ever a day that you want to be surrounded by beauty, especially in the Springtime, this is the place. The fragrant air, and the abundance of types of roses, are intoxicating. We had some visitors from Italy, and they wanted to "meet" San Jose, so we took them to a few places, and this made the short... More
