Tranquil, with a large collection of rose varieties. Stunning in the summer, great for a stroll, even in the winter. First opened in the 1930s, it has aged well.

Loose Park is a great little park in the city. The rose garden is a nice area to walk around or sit and contemplate. Close to the rose garden is a splash park, tennis courts, a playground and a walking trail goes around the park. There's also a lake with ducks, turtles and geese!

My kids loved the playground and the Splash Park was a HIT! It was a hot day, so we all got wet! We hope to explore more of this park when we visit again.

Beautiful! Just simply beautiful! My fiancé and I stopped by the Rose Garden one afternoon while in-between wedding venue appointments. The park is very well kept up and even while we were there, some people were tending to some plants and other parts of the garden. All the roses were in full bloom and looked stunning! We enjoyed walking the... More

Its beautiful when people of all creeds can come out and enjoy the ambiance. I have never ran into any troubles here. The park is expansive and is a good visit for... More

This is a park all about roses -- with a grand location and history. In late April, I happened into this garden at it's peak bloom -- and it was simply an amazing amalgam of sights and scents and color! After a few hours nearing road rage, spending time here is a rejuvenating experience. Perhaps in the off-rose-season, things are... More

Walking through the rose gardens in this gem of an urban park was very peaceful and pleasing. There were many different varieties of rose bushes and the trails within the gardens were very well maintained. I thoroughly enjoyed the gardens.

This is a very large garden space with a fountain feature and scores of beautiful roses. There is plenty of room to walk and discover the many varieties of roses. It also has a covered space that is often used for weddings. A beautiful setting for such an event. The surrounding neighborhood is composed of high end homes and an... More
