The Municipal Rose Garden is a delight for rose lovers and those who enjoy sun and manicured outdoor spaces. Several acres are enclosed in a peaceful residential area and are accessed by gates. Half the park is a grassy expanse, while the other features a central fountain, surrounded by rows of roses and arbors, with the roses all neatly identified. A stately row of redwoods separates the two areas, and restroom buildings offer relief. The garden is frequented by families, picnickers, photographers and nature lovers, and for good reason, as it is a peaceful and beautiful spot. If you come across one of the volunteers who help keep it so nice, be sure to thank them.

Stopped by the rose garden since much isn't open in that area/CA in general. It's quaint and cozy. Went on a Friday afternoon, decent amount of people, wish I would have known we could picnic there, that would have been romantic. Very relaxing place.

The roses were absolutely gorgeous, and my boyfriend and I had an amazing time roaming through the roses. It’s a place to remember, and I’d love to come back!

A beautiful garden in a wonderful neighborhood hidden in San Jose. Bring book, frisbee, snacks and stay for a few hours. Hundreds of roses in bloom (certain times of the year) with a pretty fountain, redwood trees and shady lawn areas. Gets crowded at times due to popularity.

We enjoyed very much going to the Municipal Rose Garden in San Jose. We saw so many beautiful roses! Its a great time to see them. There is a fountain area. Going to the park is free. It is in the Rose Garden Section of San Jose.
