Sandwiched between busy streets is this beautiful old rose garden. Obviously it was developed long before the busy streets, but nice.

We live in FL but my husband is from Ft Wayne. We have plenty of beach photos and wanted to try something different for our yearly photos. We met here on an August day (the photographer worried it would be too hot in the low 80s...hahaha, very funny to Floridians that low 80s is considered HOT on an Aug day).... More

This park is nice with many pretty flowers and areas. Parking can be tricky as can just getting there since it's right off of downtown

From spring through fall, you are able to see all varieties of roses and other flowers in their glory.

Tried to shoot family and engagement photos here as I am a professional photographer. We had to watch every where we walked. The whole area is full of goose and dog poop. Very distracting to clients when you are trying to capture moments. Also, had to dodge rude kids on bikes and skateboards.

This is a park that has something for EVERYONE. It has beautiful outdoor gardens and a pond for viewing and enjoying, there are tennis and basketball courts for the sport enthusiasts and both a terrific playground with equipment for children and a pavilion that you can rent out for family/group/friend events. In addition, there is a HUGE open grassy area... More

The park here is very fun for the kids to play on. The rose garden is very beautiful and a bit romantic.

Lovely but small park set in a historic neighborhood. Nothing to do other than watch the ducks and stroll or have a picnic. Weddings are very popular here.

Have not had the opportunity to visit for many years. Stopped in last September 2014 and found it challenging to visit for more then a few minutes. Maybe wrong time of the year. Probably much more interesting if a wedding would have been going on!
