“A True Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The rose garden is a lovely and well kept Schenectady gem. I like to visit there to sit on one of the benches to read a book or just gaze at the beautiful roses and fountain. Very relaxing. It is no surprise that it is such a popular spot for prom and wedding photos.

Fantastic place, loads of room, and great for exploring. We spent half a day just wandering all over in the sunshine.

“Take Time to Enjoy the Roses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

What a marvelous addition to Schenectady's Central Park. The Rose Garden -- the result of hard work and innovative planning by a rose society -- is at the entrance to the park. Parking spaces are limited but worth the wait just to stroll through the Rose Garden. Statuary and benches add to the ambiance. Name cards for the numerous varieties of roses would be helpful. What a great spot for photographers. There is nothing so beautiful as a close-up shot of a rose in bloom~!!

Wonderful playgrounds, rose garden and other activities. It is very well set up. THe only complaint is that it get busy and crowded because it is so nice.
