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.
The Rose Garden is a wonderful place, not only to see the wide variety of roses but also a great place to have a lunch, picnic or just to relax and enjoy all the beauty that exists there. Would highly recommend it for people who...More
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!

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

The garden is best seen from mid- to late April through May. However, there are blooms throughout spring, summer and fall. There is a secondary bloom usually in late September to October. One caveat: weather makes a difference. During the drought, the garden was best photographed in early April. Other years, I've been there in late April when it was just getting to full bloom. If you have a choice of time to visit, Mothers' Day is often the most popular in my experience. In a regular, non-drought year, roses shouldn't be in bloom in winter, although during the drought I know that blooms kept appearing, but the quality was not as great as the April-May, into June blooms.
