“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The roses were in full bloom and the weather was perfect. A great way to spend some time. June or July would be the ideal time to visit

“make sure to go when the roses are blooming!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Unfortunatey, there is only a good time to visit and that's when the roses are in bloom. You must go in the middle of June which I didn't. However, my Dad and I did sit on the bench and were able to view some roses that were still kind of in bloom.

“American gardens have a character all their own.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The people who plant the annual beds do a bang up job and the clematis and roses are almost museum like in their variety. I like the trees, fountains and proximity to the Japanese garden and the walkway that goes by the cemetary. Not to mention Lake Harriet ice cream and concerts.

“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.
