Officiated at a wedding there this summer. Wonderful facilities both indoors and outside. The roses are an added bonus. Don't have to worry about the rain because their indoor facilities are just as spacious.

The whole family enjoyed our trip to the Tyler Rose Garden. Beautiful scenery. Fountains, flowers, bridges.... great place to capture some outdoor photos. If you enjoy gardening you'll enjoy reading all the descriptions on each species of rose.

Hundreds of varieties, thousands of flowers! The perfect place for a quiet walk, with several benches around water fountains to just relax and take in the wonders and smells of roses. Don’t forget your camera!

The rose gardens were lovely, even though most of the roses were no longer in bloom. It was very peaceful to wander along the trails, over the bridges, and relax under the gazebo.

The Master Gardener in the family enjoyed the gardens immensely, and the geohydrologist enjoyed the water features. Unfortunately the roses were few at the time we visited (wrong time of year) but other parts of the garden (the Master Gardeners' plots) were very nice. Good...More
