We loved this place! The roses were beautiful & the garden was just so peaceful. Seems like a great place to have a wedding or an outdoor event of some sort. No admission fee and you can walk around at your own place! Highly recommend to anyone traveling in this area!

Whetstone has a large amount of tennis courts, some baseball diamonds, a large catch and release fishing pond for kids. There are several bike paths and walking trails. The park also has a enclosed community shelter house that host many community meetings. During the summer it is also a day camp for kids. The park also has a few open shelter houses and several pinic tables with grills in a wooded area. There is a large open grass field where people play different games. Near the 4th of July the field is fenced off and used as a location for fireworks. This park has many people walking their dogs. Behind the enclosed shelter house is another park filled with a large verity of roses and other types of flowers, called the park of roses. The park is well maintained by the Columbus Recreation and Parks system. I believe that the Park of Roses has a large group of community volunteers who help maintain the roses and flowers. On the east side of the park is a public library and a sizable recreation center.

It's a good place to go for a walk if you live in the neighborhood. But not worth a drive to get here. The roses are mostly just green shrubs. It's not colorful like a flower garden. And that's all there is to do: walk on pavement around small shrubs. The bike trails might be fun but I doubt the scenery is any better.

This is a fairly large park near High Street in Clintonville, just behind a branch of the public library. It has some limited sports facilities, lots of walking trails, picnicking and most important come summer a wide display of roses, starting with heritage roses well worth your visit if you like roses with fragrances. Then come the various hybrids, lots of wedding parties and rose lovers. Concerts are scheduled in the summer. A very pleasant place to stop and smell the roses, have a picnic and enjoy yourself.

Historic rose garden beds are full of fragrance in June. There are also loads of examples of every kind of rose you can imagine. In addition there are other perrennial gardens with herbs and sustainable themes.
