The rose garden is beautiful; in fact, people have weddings there because when it is in full bloom it is beautiful and fragrant, a welcome paradise in a not so nice area. There is a dog park next door where I have been bit and encountered some dangerous dogs, and the park is nice with some great play areas for the kids and also a nice walking/running path around the pond. Unfortunately, it is not in the best area and I have seen people dealing drugs and other unpleasantries while there, so I reccommend if you visit that you go with someone, stick to the beaten path, so to speak, and park in a visible spot. That being said, I have enjoyed sitting in the rose garden and have not been bothered if I stayed just inside of the rose garden. The only downside is that there is not parking directly outside of it, so you have to walk by the dog park or through the park to get there, unless you find parking on a side street.

The rose garden has undergone a huge transformation over the last several years as the result of a dedicated group of volunteers. It's absolutely beautiful.

The Rose Garden is tended to by volunteers, who offer tending, loving care to the many varieties of roses. It is a lovely place to have a wedding, with a little stone bridge. I cannot say enough about this crown jewel in Schenectady's Central Park.

this is a very beautiful park and rose garden. but most of all what it represents is important. there is a small section for each and all the lives of loved one in the area that lost there lives to violence.
