Keep in mind that parking might be tricky, but as long as you are walking through the rose garden, distance does not matter, right?

Even if you came to San Jose for a day or two, you will be moved by this place. Come alone or with the family. Can bring your date here and I promise that she is going to be touched :))

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.
