The Gardens of the American Rose Center is beautiful most of the year. Of course, when the roses are at their peak, you get the best experience. However, it is a peaceful place of solitude, and I learned a lot about the different sponsors of the various venues. Some gardens represent cities while others represent states. Many wedding occur in... More

Although it was a natural area there were few roses blooming but it could have been the time of year. Seems the grounds needed some work. The structures look unkempt and the beds needed work. I could see it would be a nice venue for a wedding if the roses are blooming. It doesn't live up to it's potential.

The signature event of the American Rose Center is its annual Christmas in Roseland, featuring large plywood, hand-painted Christmas card displays crafted by the art classes of area schools. Other features include thousands of Christmas lights, a train ride for the children and a Santa. At $5.00 per person or $20 per carload, this is an annual tradition which should... More

We went here in early October when there should still be roses but the place was deserted and there were less roses than I have at home on 4 rose bushes in containers. Don't bother wasting your time here.

Hello Worldtravella, we are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit! Unfortunately our roses had a rough summer and our fall bloom didn't really begin to come around until November. We are currently taking steps to start our renovations next year and plan to have roses and other plants that are more resilient to the heat. It's a... More

Beautiful grounds and a pleasure to take a quite walk when weather is cooler. During holidays they offer programs during the weeks prior to new year and it is family centered. Very nice.

We visited at Christmas time. The facilities were excellent. They had displays done by local community schools, in addition to their light displays. I felt this was a nice touch. The restrooms and gift shop were clean and easily accessible, despite this being after normal operating hours for the Center. The only thing they could have improved would be to... More

Being gardeners we went two hour out of our way on our vacation trip to visit this place and it was an absolute waste of time.
