There are more than roses in this nice botanical garden. It makes for a perfect stop if you are at Lake Harriet (on the east side) or biking along the trails. Besides the roses, of which there are many fragrant varieties, there are annuals and perennials plus a couple beautiful fountains. It may not be the largest flower garden in... More

We were here in April and in September. Even when most of the roses are gone the colors are fabulous. A walk in the evening is full of beauty and so relaxing.

This park is divided into several sections & is very attractive. The roses were lovely, but the other side of road appealed more to me with large trees, lawns & flower borders.

Have been here with family members in May, June and July this year. In May and early June there were lovely tulips and other flowers. Now, in early July, the roses are coming into their own - dozens of varieties, carefully developed and maintained. During both Spring and Summer (and I assume in the Fall) the fountain with turtle statues... More

Rose garden is not large, but well maintained, connected to a beautiful park and a magnificent flower garden. It leads to one of Minneapolis' beautiful lakes, Lake Harriet. Wonderful walk for local residents like me! Two unique water fountains adorn the park and garden.

This is a great Gem in Minneapolis. Often used for wedding and graduation photos. The roses will be in bloom mostly in the summer months but there are other gardens that are blooming most of the growing season. This is a very spacious park and great for a picnic or a stroll. It is next to a Japanese garden, a... More
