Definitely a 5 star place if you go during the blooming times. Adjacent to the theater area, it can be part of a fun day and evening on a Raleigh excursion.

We used this location for a professional photo shoot for my wife and added a few casual shots for the both of us. Great photos resulted.

The gardens are spectacular. Each rose had it's own bed. The photos are really beautiful. We just walked around for a few minutes- it's a nice spot for a picnic!

This is a hidden gem. RLT has great performances, a beautiful rose garden, and a wonderful outdoor amphitheater. Worth attending even if just to sniff a rose.

The Little Theatre Rose garden is truly an urban oasis. Tucked in a neighborhood near NC State university, you’ll find lots of parking restrictions during the day. I like to stroll through the gardens not only while the roses are blooming but throughout the year.
