So many beautiful flowers. My son's graduation was here. The only problem is parking. But it is well worth going to check it out

I have been going to the Rose Garden since I was a little girl. I loved it then and now even more. I took my Mother there for Mother’s Day and she loved it.

This is a very attractive neighborhood park with a large grass area for picnics and for little ones to run around as no dogs are allowed. When in full bloom the roses are stunning. Well maintained by staff and volunteers.

You can wander peacefully around roughly two square blocks of park containing an enormous variety of roses.

Walked this garden several times, great place to visit during rose blooming season. Can get crowded at times and parking can be difficult but still great location.

I had spare time and I went for a walk just to confirm there are no roses during the winter :) It didn't worth the visit. The garden is very small. There is a nice fountain. Anyway, it is definitely nothing special and you better...More

Many cities have rose gardens, but don’t miss this one if you are in San Jose. Bring a blanket and lunch and enjoy. Definitely come spring/summer to see it in full beauty! Take a drive through the neighborhood to see some of San Jose’s most...More

First time visiting the Rose Garden although I’ve lived here for what seems like centuries.. Mot the ideal time of year to visit as the blooms were mostly done. What there was left was beautiful, fragant, and well maintained. Quiet and peaceful stroll with a...More

Thanks for coming and visiting. It is one of San Jose's Historic Landmarks, opening in the 1930's. It's amazing that we still have roses blooming in December! But indeed, they are seasonal. It's still a nice, quiet place to come and relax, but don't expect...More
