“Small but beautiful”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Very close to NC state campus. Beautiful variety and well maintained garden. You dont have to plan anything for this. Just go there whenever you want and you will have good time.

“Great place for a picnic”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I love the rose garden because it is always so beautiful. It is maintained with tender loving care and offers something all year round. There are picnic tables, lush grass, and benches that provide seating. You can be out in the open or you can find a hidden nook for some privacy even in this public park. It should be noted that there are no public bathrooms.

“Gorgeous!!!!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This place is quite hidden and is definitely one of those hidden gems people have referenced it as. The amount of pictures that can be taken here is countless and the roses are extremely beautiful. Plus, if you are there during pruning the groundskeeper will allow you take some of the roses. Nice! They smell so lovely too...

“A small gem near campus”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The rose garden is relatively small and simple, with a strong focus on the main attraction-roses. At the height of bloom, it's one of the most beautiful spots in Raleigh--perfect for admiring a large variety of roses, for a leisurely stroll, for a romantic chat, for a pleasant picnic lunch. The flowers are truly magnificent, and when conditions are right, the scent is marvelous. This is one of those kinds of attractions that you'd expect to find tucked away in a European city, so kudos to Raleigh for having one as well. Street parking is sometimes difficult during the week when the university is in session, but there's a parking lot on the theater end of the property.
