Didn't enjoy this Rose Garden too much at all. We expected a lot more and drove out quite a long way to get here.

A small but tasteful and well-kept garden near Lake Harriet. Beautiful and colorful flowers. Wish they were there year round. Would add a dash of colors during the white winters.

Minnesota winters make rose gardening a lot of work, so we enjoy the Lake Harriet Rose Garden. It is a formal garden with spectacular beds and fun fountains. And it's right off the walking path surrounding the lake, or one can park right beside it....More

Many years ago, the Rose Gardens suffered a lot of damage from a tornado, but they have fully recovered. Join all the other Grandmothers in town and go visit- it's also great stroll near Lake Harriet.

This is a nice little park next to the lake Harriet. It's a sweet little retreat for locals and tourists. It's never crowded, which is really nice if you are looking for a quiet place.

This place is amazing. When the flowers are in season, it's a stunningly beautiful place. Vast array of roses are displayed. It's a wonderful free place, with refreshments & toilet facilities across the street. Great place to spend 30-60 minutes.

Not worth the trip. If you are walking around Lake Harriet and are seeking a visual distraction, then its ok ... and just ok. This is definitely not a destination. You can find more roses at your local garden store.

There are larger rose gardens in the U.S. but this is a fine place to casually observe the beauty of many fine roses. Combine it with a Lake Harriet outing (across the parkway) for exercise or for concert-going. Stop and smell the roses!

This rose garden (billed as one of the largest???) is very, very small, and many of the little beds were quite new, so they weren't large plants, etc. We were there in June, yet I was unimpressed. The scenery was nice, but not really worth...More

I'm sure you can, although I don't remember seeing anyone walking there with a dog.
