I was very impressed by the variety and number of roses at this location. Bring your camera! You can probably spend as little as 30 minutes here, just for a quick look, or 1 - 1.5 hours if you take your time.

With over 4,000 roses you could spend all day! It's the best "cheap date spot" in the Bay Area! Thanks for visiting and hope you return soon!

Amazing variety of roses, very well maintained, good for a evening walk or enjoying nice sun shine during the day, has separate space (huge) for kids to play

The redwood trees flank a large, lovely, varied collection of roses. It is a great place to marvel at the variety of colors and shapes of roses, read a book, or spend a nice time with friends or family. Highly recommended.

The garden is not that big, not many varieties either. But is a peaceful place, good especially for the locals I guess. Visitors won’t find it that good especially if they had visited bigger and more famous rose gardens like me.More

Yes! The Rose Garden is San Jose's "Best Cheap Date Spot"!!!

Garden is well maintained, beautiful. A lot of people there on the weekend though. A pretty good place to photograph family portraits, sitting on the grass and between the trees of roses.

Reputed to be the largest rose garden in the country, it consists mostly of large beds of densely planted varieties. It is flat and not as aesthetically designed as some other rose garden, but was still lush in August, when it probably was past its...More

We went three weeks ago and it was still gorgeous. I'd think you'd still be able to see lovely blooms now.
