In June of 2001, I lost my son Joseph shortly after birth. Lehigh Valley hospital had a program where at their expense you have the option of sprinkling your babies ashes there. If you ever notice, back by the one gazebo towards the stream is a plaque in the ground stating here lies my child. Some may feel uncomfortable with my decision, but for me there is no other place i would like to pay my respects to my son Joseph because he lies with beautiful roses, baby birds flying. Very comforting to me to visit him there. The only thing that is missing are the harps playing angel music.
So next time you visit or visit for the 1st time know they are angels guiding over of of you.

The Allentown Park system is a true gem in the Lehigh Valley and the Rose Garden is the centerpiece of its design. The gardens are set up to cover all seasons with bulbs and flowering trees in the spring and roses, annuals and perennials blooming throughout the summer. Fall flowers and foliage to please the eyes. In winter the empty trellises and dormant trees give you hope that spring will soon return. There are ponds and statues and quiet places to sit. You can simply enjoy the gardens or you can stroll along the Cedar Creek. Joggers and exercise enthusiasts can use the paved paths and exercise circuit that is also handicap accessible. Across the field from the gardens, pavilions and public restrooms are available, as well as volleyball courts and open spaces for frisbees, kite flying and other activities. The Rose Garden does not allow pets but the rest of the park areas are pet friendly. I hope that you stop by to enjoy the area.

I have attached some pictures from previous visits.

It is lovely to walk in, it is great for wedding photos - regardless of the season. The stream that runs through the Rose Garden is beautiful. There are picnic tables it is fun to go there for an impromptu lunch with friends and family.

The management here is the rudest, unprofessional and just disrespectful. We come down to vist our grandchildren 3 to 5 times a year. This hateful manager comes out to the pool and wants 10.00 per person for two hours. Oh, and we where the only ones at the pool.
The pool rules say the pool opens at 9 am, it was 12:15 on a clear beautiful day. Just Sorry.

This has been an Allentown attraction for many years. There is no better place for an enjoyable stroll through magnificently maintained rose gardens. Many area people have come here for their wedding photographs, so when the roses are in bloom this place will be busy. I know of no one person who has not been impressed with the Rose Garden

If you are visiting Allentown and the Rose Gardens are in bloom, you definitely do not want to miss a walk through. In late spring, summer and early fall, catch bridal parties being photographed, adding to the joy of visiting.

The gardens are a great place for weddings or for pictures taken after weddings. I know as 46 yrs ago I had our wedding pictures taken here. Also nice walking trails and picnic areas.

I was surprised that there were no reviews of this little gem. I often stop at the Rose Garden on my way to the Fairgounds Farmers' Market. There are dozens of varieties of gorgeous roses in season, tagged with their names. There are walkers on the paths, photographers, artists, bird watchers and flower lovers like myself. Limousines line up on Saturdays with wedding parties to have their photos taken with a beautiful backdrop. A path also leads to a spot called the Old-Fashioned Garden, which blooms a bit later than the roses. No restrooms or refreshments available but benches to sit and relax. I wouldn't travel miles to Allentown to see the garden but if you're nearby during rose season, it would be a beautifu peek into a well-maintained garden and best of all, it's free.
