“A beautiful place to spend a summer evening”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

There were lots of roses in full bloom when we visited here this summer, and they were maintained pretty well. There is also a green open area where kids were throwing a football around or playing with a frisbee.

It is very calming to walk around the roses and take in some of nature's beauty. Definitely worth a visit!

“Beautiful free adventure”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

If you have a nose for scent this leisurely adventure is for you !
The rose gardens are well kept and very clean. There is an expansive park for a picnic lunch. The water fountain in the middle adds character. Very nice way to spend an afternoon.

The volunteers did a great job: they are so kind and the garden has a huge variety of beautiful roses with also good descriptions.
There's also a fountain and some benches.
I really enjoyed my time in it.

“Pure tranquility”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This is a walk in heaven. I want to get married here! Amazingly kept roses, bursting with fragrance. Beautifully kept grounds with a large are of redwoods lining the perimeter where ceremonies often are. There's also a large lawn so you can easily enjoy picnics and family outings. At the center of the garden is a beautiful fountain. Pure tranquility. I understand why is boasts as America's Finest Rose Garden! Help keep it that way!
