The Rose Garden is amazingly beautiful. It is a place for great photos Weddings take place there as do other celebrations. The park has a small spray park for younger kids and a playground.

There is parking, and full park and the stunningly beautiful displays of arranged rose bushes and other plants and trees. Well worth a visit.
