Gardens of the American Rose Center Reviews
The American Rose center is one of the most beautiful places in Earth. It is best to go in late Spring to early summer to get the full effect. It is best to go early in the day, bring water. You might want to consider an umbrella or parasol if you go late in thr day the direct sun in Louisiana can be a beast. There are many lovely statues and hundreds of rose varietals. There are also several benches in the shade. If you love roses the American Rose Center is the place to see them... See them early before it is 100+ degrees out.
My family and I love this place! It is beautiful! We love that you can get out and walk and get up close to the roses. We love to go during the Christmas season, and walk around the lighted displays. They are beautiful, and it's so much more fun than a drive-through Park!
