“Second Oldest Rose Garden in the USA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Beautiful, peaceful, free. Right across from Lake Harriet. A lovely place to stroll through. The Peace Garden is right across the street from the Rose Garden so you can visit both. Open from 6 AM to 10 PM. Best roses are from July on.

“Weekday peace and beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Always free, an oasis from the hustle and bustle at the lake just down the street, especially during weekdays.
My kids love it. My elderly parents loved it. When flowers are blooming, a mystical place - and some great scents. Visit often and enjoy the season changes, flowers or not.

“Lovely garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We enjoyed walking around the rose garden after our supper.
We also like the exotic plants and herbs and spices at the end of the garden.

“Such a small rose garden”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I guess that when you move from a country where has extrodinary flowers compare to that, this rose garden is just an ok place. But it is nice to go for a walk tho, especially on a saturday morning, across the garden there is the peace garden where you can see a lot of yoga practitioners have morning yoga in the garden! it is lovely!
