Pictures for any event taken here are stunning and a beautiful experience! The range of roses - types, colors, blooms is fascinating. There are many artistic points of beauty and endless variety.

Nice little garden in my driving range for a relax walk and smell the beautiful rose. Well maintained. We enjoy it being tuck away in a quiet neighborhood, less people and many roses are from rare species.

Used to live nearby many years ago and would come here to run. Lovely park in a lovely (but pricey) neighborhood. Still come back when I can to enjoy the shady trees and excellent collection of roses.

Absolutely beautiful beds of roses, lovingly tended by volunteer "Friends of the Rose Garden" in San Jose. Absolutely worth a detour if you are in San Jose.

All roses in the Garden are "hybrids", meaning they are created by hybridizers that work for the rose producing companies such as Weeks and Star Rosrs. Google " Tom Carruth", one of the most award winning rose hybridizers. Many of the roses, both new and...More

We went three weeks ago and it was still gorgeous. I'd think you'd still be able to see lovely blooms now.
