Absolutely fantastic when the hundreds of rose bushes are in bloom, but fun place to stroll regardless.

If you in to seeing all the roses in their glory you have to come when the real beauty of this park is in full bloom. Concerts in the park are always a pleasure to enjoy throughout the summer.

The park is gorgeous in the Summer months and everyone from young children to senior citizens can enjoy the beauty of thousands of roses blooming. A great place for relaxing and enjoying the beauty.

This is a beautiful and well maintained park. I've been to several rose parks and this is by far the nicest one. I live in Columbus and love to come visit this park from time to time.

We had seen this park about 35 years ago. During our recent visit to Columbus, we just had to go back. August is not the best time to view roses in the summer, but relatively cool weather had many of them quite nice. It is still the most impressive collection of its kind.

Nice place to go walking after sitting in meetings all day long at work. There is no charge for entering the park. It features a beautiful fountain in the center of the park.

Timing it just right is the key, but what a joy! Wish all our visitors had been able to see this place in bloom as it is one of the best outdoor things to see here.

We were planning to go to the botanical gardens, but decided not to because we didn't want to pay the admission. This was a wonderful FREE alternative! The park is a nice size and well maintained. The tower is neat because you get a nice view of the entire park. It was nice to casually stroll through here - the... More
