This is truly one of the greatest spots in Minneapolis. In Spring and Summer when the flowers are in bloom you can't pick a better strolling spot. On Sunday afternoons a local Greyhound rescue organization walks the dogs around Lake Harriet and there are often concerts at the bandshell and theres a snack bar for popcorn and ice cream. If...

Adjacent to Lake Harriett, we find a very attractive garden of roses there which is worth seeing. But you know, the roses are short-lived and from the end of July, they lose of their magnificence. To visit all the same.

This garden is a very touristic place. Roses in all colors and shapes. It got a large assortment of flowers. The fountains are so fun.

Didn't enjoy this Rose Garden too much at all. We expected a lot more and drove out quite a long way to get here.

A small but tasteful and well-kept garden near Lake Harriet. Beautiful and colorful flowers. Wish they were there year round. Would add a dash of colors during the white winters.

Minnesota winters make rose gardening a lot of work, so we enjoy the Lake Harriet Rose Garden. It is a formal garden with spectacular beds and fun fountains. And it's right off the walking path surrounding the lake, or one can park right beside it. The location next to the Japanese gardens and the bird sanctuary mean one can make... More

Many years ago, the Rose Gardens suffered a lot of damage from a tornado, but they have fully recovered. Join all the other Grandmothers in town and go visit- it's also great stroll near Lake Harriet.

This is a nice little park next to the lake Harriet. It's a sweet little retreat for locals and tourists. It's never crowded, which is really nice if you are looking for a quiet place.

This isn't a huge area but you must see the varieties of roses. All colors and sizes. It is pleasant to be able to stroll right up close and smell and take a close up picture. Lots of people but seemingly no crowding. It is near Lake Harriet as an extra bonus. This is a great way to spend a... More

This place is amazing. When the flowers are in season, it's a stunningly beautiful place. Vast array of roses are displayed. It's a wonderful free place, with refreshments & toilet facilities across the street. Great place to spend 30-60 minutes.
