“Pretty flowers, but kind of a ....yawn.”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

A nice spot in the middle of a residential area for a brief respite. The roses are nice at "rose" time, but not so great at "no rose" time. There really isn't anything to do here except sit and stare, or walk up and down the rows of rose...and stare.

“Nice view of many roses”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

A nice walk through a rose garden. A quiet place to relax and smell the flowers. You can spend 1 hour or several hours depending how much you like the different roses.

“Beautiful rose garden”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

This rose garden takes up a whole city block and is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. Parking is free on Naglee and surrounding streets. The garden is open to the public for free during daylight hours. There were thousands of roses in every color of the rainbow. There is a lovely fountain in the center and some seating. Some walkways are paved and others are just grass.

“Beautiful oasis in the city”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Many different types of roses in a large park. Beautifully maintained with drinking water fountains close by. Those fountains are especially appreciates on a hot, sunny day.
