The walk through the rose garden was very enjoyable. For some younger ones there are some fun "games" that can be done to get them active in the hunt ( the older ones could have fun with it too). I have been to the Portland rose garden and the Municipal garden is pretty good compared to Portland's. In San Jose... More

We like to go there with a blanket and lunch and sit it the shade and read. Lots of families with kids having a good time.

Great place for a quiet walk or just time to think. A picnic is another option. There are benches and tables throughout the park. Shady areas for hot days and sunny areas when there is a little chill in the air!!

This garden is HUGE for a rose garden and an absolute pleasure to walk through, any time of year. Bring a blanket and hang out, or go for a stroll through the assorted rose bushes.

This is a beautiful rose garden. Plenty of benches to enjoy the garden, rest and relax. It has a large grass field where kids can run around. It does not have a playground for kids.

We started our 6th Anniversary evening here by repeating our vows to each other by the fountain. A friend took pictures and we danced 1 dance (we brought a recorder) among the beautiful roses. Very romantic. I sometimes get my morning walk in on the paths in, around and through the roses. Beautiful lawns to relax and have a picnic... More

This is a beautiful retreat in the center of chaotic San Jose. Love all the roses, trees and large grass area - perfect for letting the kids loose! The paths that circle the outside of the rose garden are great for walking, running, biking. There are public restrooms, picnic tables, and numerous little areas to set up a blanket away... More

My husband proposed to me in the garden so it will always be a special place for us. When I need someplace peaceful to walk and enjoy the beautiful outdoors this is my destination.
