“Lots of Roses”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

If you like roses, you'll love Exposition Park's rose garden. We were there on June 22, and the roses needed some care and pruning. I think the drought is probably the reason for this. I was a little disappointed that they were labeled for variety types, but I still managed to get some good photos. Someone please donate some money so these rose bushes can be labeled. There is a beautiful huge fountain in the middle of the park.

“Cool but watch your back!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

I like the diversity of attractions, especially for the kids (natural history and science museums). But the 'hood is not safe, so watch your back and stay close to the Exposition Park and USC campus.

“Ridiculously Beautiful!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Exposition Park's Rose Garden is a gorgeous little gem of a place nestled between a few of L.A.'s best museums!!...And since the Rose Garden is free, I am inclined to be obsessed with it LoL!!...They have 15,000 rose bushes...and every one of them is a stunner!! Inspired by a write-up about it I saw in a AAA magazine, this was my first visit to the park. I coupled it with a trip to the Natural History Museum's Butterfly Pavilion, right next door. It was late May, and the rose blooms were spectacular!! Added and unexpected delights included shaded gazebos for lingering and a quite impressive water fountain. If you are taking public transportation, the Expo line will get you right there!!

“Come for the rose garden then enjoy the museums”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

An absolutely beautiful stop in Los Angeles. The rose garden is absolutely amazing. Every type of rose you could every grow. The smell when the bloom is crazy. The museums that surround the garden along with the Colosseum are beautiful withing themselves. Used in many TV shows and movies shows how pretty this place is. Bring a lunch and picnic outside if your here to visit the museums.
