My husband and I frequent this garden for its tranquility and to hear the laughter of little folk running around asking things like, "Why would a flower be named 'Ketchup and Mustard?'" I've taken my mother here for a surprise picnic. We bring our adult...More

A stroll amongst the beautiful blooms is an absolute delight. My husband and I love taking in the variety of roses and the well maintained garden as we put away the iPhone (except for taking pictures the fountain and roses) and savor our "together time".

The myriad of colors in the garden and its serenity make this a must-do destination in San Jose. It's remarkable that the beauty of the Rose Garden is made possible by the many volunteers who help maintain it.

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