After making the 13 mile trip from our hotel on the river, we were disappointed to find that this garden had been "de-bloomed" by a recent tornado.

We will try and return another time, but will call ahead.

I attended Christmas in Roseland for years as a child. 30 years later, many of the same displays are still standing. It's a nice walk with your children or sweetheart, but many of the exhibits are looking quite run down and needing replaced. Still, fanciful and fun to see with the thousands of lights and winding paths.

I have been here a few times so far this year. The light festival was pretty good; nice for a family outing. Otherwise, if you are looking for roses, you should call to make sure they are in bloom before you drive out there. Nice grounds for wedding, prom, portrait pictures etc..

There is a lovely garden with so many beautiful roses. It is worth the trip for anyone that likes to see flowers. Check to see what is blooming before making the trek.

We called to see if they were even open, since it is late in the season. They said yes, come on down. When we got there we found the building closed. Signs directed us to a lower parking lot which looked like a car hasn't been parked there for several years. We parked anyway and started to walk around. Although not fully in bloom (it is the end of the season) you could see that it would be very pretty. We seemed to be walking around with no direction. The Cell Phone Narratives were interesting, but disjointed.
