This rose garden isn't as big as some of the others that I have visited, but it had some of the healthiest roses I've ever seen. It also had a great variety of roses and was well cared for.

I live near this garden so frequently walk through it and imagine myself in a magical garden. It is one of my very favorite San Diego spots. Go when you need to be in a calm place. Go when you need some beauty in your life. Go when you need a thinking place. Just go.

Visit the Rose Garden in the morning to start you day at Balboa Park. The roses smell best under the early morning sun and the garden is quiet.
