Attracted to Loose Park by this rose garden, we ventured out to see it for the first time. It's a really picturesque circular garden, ideal for weddings. The roses weren't in full bloom in most of the garden so obviously the beginning of August isn't a great time to see them. The fountain was a nice touch, added in the... More

Nice park, beautifully manicured rose gardens. Lots of activity here, but big enough to get caught up in your own thoughts.

IT is not just a rose garedn but a beauty of a park with century old building and pavilions close by for and a first class running path right by. And the roses are well tended by a private non-profit group that really put thier heart in it. Many weddings and special occassion but need to reserve in advance.

The Rose Garden in Loose Park offers a huge variety of roses laid out in concentric circles starting from a central fountain. It is impossible to not stop to smell and admire the beauty of these flowers.

This is a fantastic park for a walk. You can see a nice landscaped area in peace and quiet. It down not seem to attract the type of people to play loud music and make the park unsafe. It is in a nice area.

I was there to walk around for the signage regarding the battlefield (Battle of Westport). If you read the information closely you can get a pretty good idea of what happened during the battle. Tucked inside an upscale neighborhood an... More
