  • We were a little too early in the winter months to get the best of this lovely rose garden. It's a lovely park in a pleasant residential area but best in the late spring when the roses are in bloom.  more »
  • This little park is primarily cared for by volunteers. It is very well taken care of and even has a couple of wild turkeys that reside on the property.  more »
  • A beautiful garden, set among homes, a relief from the hustle bustle of the city. The variety of roses were astounding n in beautifully manicured garden. There were two peacocks entertaining us n little bushy tails running around. A tranquil water feature added to the beauty. All in all we had a pleasant time. Bring your own food/ drinks though
  • Beautiful place, peaceful for a meditation, you can hear sound bells, skunks, squirrels, cats, rodents, lots of roses, that smell lovely, redwoods, other trees, is full of nature and good energy for a nice walk with you family or a date. Totally recommended!
