I love all kinds of flowers. I was very happy when I see the many and colorful flowers at the Rose Garden. Such a refreshing view amidst the August heat in Arizona. I surely will go back in September when all will be in bloom. Nice staff also and very helpful.

I stopped by in between my classes at MCC. There are a few sidewalks and paths running through it but mostly dirt or grass pathways. There are many different kinds of roses there in various colors. It's a great spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Our large group was fortunate to have a very knowledgeable docent lead our tour tour of the garden. The gardens are maintained exclusively by volunteers and donations from the community.

This will not take a lot of your time and it is free. We walked around for maybe, 30 minutes and the roses are amazing. Nice place to snap some photos, reflect, or just stop to smell the roses.

We were overwhelmed at the beauty of the roses. We have a few scraggly rose bushes at our home, but this was amazing. Roses like these are not easy to grow. We will be back.

This is the largest public rose garden in the southwest, and it is gorgeous. It is in full bloom, from the Veterans garden all the way down to the corner of Southern and Dobson.
