  • If you love roses, this is the place to visit. My wife and I come here in early June every year to stroll through the acres of roses and other flowers. I would definitely classify this as a hidden gem...  more »

  • If u have never been there the roses and pic places are behind the east shelter house not very visible from the parking lot but man o man even this late in summer the blooms we're incredible. The play area was wonderful has a two story slide. A nice toddler play space with size appropriate equipment.
  • Rose park contains varieties of roses with almost all possible colors :). it’s pretty large area with bunch of smaller section dedicated to each type. fountain looks amazing during full bloom. Best time to visit is may end when it’s in full bloom.
