This is an amazing venue for Shakespeare in the park, especially when supported by Cirque du Vol. The roses are not to be missed in June.

I had never really thought about how different varieties of roses could smell! Gorgeous, peaceful, and with a splendid little outdoor ampitheater to frolic in as well! Definitely recommend stopping by if you're in Raleigh!

The gardens aren't huge when you compare them to Duke Gardens or Raulston Arboretum. But, when the roses are in bloom it's absolutely breathtaking in this small little hidden park in the middle of some side streets near NCSU. When I was a student here I would bring my books and study for a while when I needed a quiet... More

A nice place to sit and read, play music with friends under trees, walk and smell the roses...and right near the Raleigh Little Theatre!

Went to see "Blithe Spirit" at RLT. Great, professional production. Set was very well designed, giving the feeling of the time period. Highly recommend.

Nice rose garden it would be a great place for a wedding. Lovely when the flowers are in bloom. Our most recent visit was near Christmas but you have to visit in the spring when blooms are finest. The outdoor theatre is quite nice too.

We love bringing the kids here all year round but the garden is especially beautiful in the spring. This garden makes a beautiful backdrop for family, couple or engagement photography. We've had a few friends get married as well and their ceremonies were stunning!

We took some of our engagement photos here. It is a beautiful place to hang out. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the roses and stone step amphitheater.

As a child I took modern jazz and had my recitals at the Raleigh Little Theater. After the recitals I always enjoyed going into the rose garden and now, 40 years later, I'm still visiting the gardens. It's quiet and relaxing and the perfect place to bring a picnic lunch and a good book to read. They have a very... More

We attended a play in the Goodwin Theater. It is small and unique in that the seating surrounds the stage. The acting was very good, the staff pleasant and the venue very good. We will go back.
