Visited here in late October and it was evident that we missed the peak blooming season, but there were still some to see!
Very relaxing to wander thru the garden, see the roses and stopped and sit along the trails.
Garden entrance is free and so is the parking nearby.

Thank Napunani

Hundreds of varieties, thousands of flowers! The perfect place for a quiet walk, with several benches around water fountains to just relax and take in the wonders and smells of roses. Don’t forget your camera!

The rose gardens were lovely, even though most of the roses were no longer in bloom. It was very peaceful to wander along the trails, over the bridges, and relax under the gazebo.

The rose garden covers 14 acres and features numerous varieties of roses (Tyler is the Rose Capital of the World), and admission to it is free. Parking is also free across the street at the Harvey Convention Center.

There is also a Rose Museum which charges admission. But unless you're into beauty pageants, don't waste your money, as all it features are gowns from past winners of the Tyler Rose Parade.

The gift shop is nice but it's only open until 5pm.

The Master Gardener in the family enjoyed the gardens immensely, and the geohydrologist enjoyed the water features. Unfortunately the roses were few at the time we visited (wrong time of year) but other parts of the garden (the Master Gardeners' plots) were very nice. Good place to catch some shade and thick grass. It is easy to find.

Not the months to visit the gardens. October and its festival, I guess, are much better as the roses now are dying/fading badly and in great need of pruning. The setting and layout are lovely and the staff friendly.

As a local kid growing up in Tyler I spent some great times here as a kid. Beautiful setting and plenty of Tyler’s world famous roses.

The small fountain in the photo holds memories of our 6th grade party years ago when myself and other guys told a fellow student that we would pay him $1 to wade across the fountain. He rolled up his suit pants and was half way to the other side when our teacher caught him. The point of no return. There was much yelling, but he made it. Fun times.

First of hopefully many return trips to this beautiful place.
Most roses were still in bloom in October.
We had no idea so many varieties of roses existed.
The museum inside is also a must see!
Full of information about the history of the Tyler's Rose festival. Well worth the $3.00 admission.

I didn't know that Tyler had a rose festival. This garden was gorgeous. When you stop for a visit, you must take the time to see the museum.
