“Our great neigborhood”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We live in the rose garden & we have a chance to pass by & visit it regularly. Its the size of a city block & you often will see people running around the rose garden or walking their dogs around. Inside is a great park atmosphere that the community helps maintain. Come enjoy the beauty of the rose garden & enjoy a picnic with your friends & family

“A relaxing place for everyone”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The garden is clean and well kept although I found some wilted rose bushes. We came here in the summer, and of course, the roses could not withstand the heat. Nevertheless, I found the place relaxing for a walk. The fountain in the center of the garden makes this place better to visit than the Heritage rose garden near the Guadalupe river.
There was no parking lots designated for visitors, but there were plenty of parking on the street. The garden wasn't too crowded during the weekend. I recommend to visit this garden if you stay in San Jose for a day and wonder where to go in town beside shopping at Westfield Valley Fair/ Santana Row.

“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.

“Lovely garden”

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.
