My boyfriend and I ended up here on one of our Sunday afternoon dates. It’s such a beautiful place to walk around and find a bench to sit on and take in all the many colors of the roses. Lots of places to take pictures.

A lovely place to enjoy roses and nature in the center of Silicon Valley. Bring a picnic or just stroll amongst the hundreds of rose varieties. Just down the street is the epic Egyptian Museum.

It is good to know that you can still stop and smell the roses in December. The layout of this place is not particularly imaginitive, and I would like to see more scented rosesMore

I've been there a few times in Spring and Summer and it was always in full bloom, but I'd recommend you call San Jose parks people and check. Also there are so many varieties of roses, a lot of them are always in bloom... More
