We have been here a few times. It's always beautiful and well maintained. We've also had professional photographs taken here and they came out spectacular!

We shot some photos here in August for our daughter's wedding and they all ended up looking amazing. But beyond that, it's a well maintained, unique garden that's just nice to walk in. It's part of Central Park in Schenectady and that's a great park too.

This little piece of Schenectady is such a beautiful place to go and take pictures with your family. I have also had clients go here with a photographer to do family pictures for their new home. Just lovely

The rose garden is a beautiful place but the rest of the park needs a great deal of cleaning up. We walk through the park often and are ashamed of the condition and filth of the duck pond, the fountain pond and the courts and fields. It's too bad some of the volunteerism that the rose garden enjoys couldn't spill... More

Not as large of a garden as appeared in pictures. We visited in September so flowers were not in their prime. Still a very pretty and tranquil environment. Located in the Central Park in Schenectady, NY. Central Park is a beautiful oasis in this city. I am more impressed by the ponds. We enjoyed feeding the geese (bring plenty of... More

An exceptional urban flower garden in the large municipal park in the heart of Schenectady, NY. Unique spot used many times a year for wedding photography.

Enjoyed my visit to the rose garden with my daughter and granddaughter. Other than smelling the roses, we used it as back drop for lots of pictures of my lovely granddaughter. There is not much around this rose garden to dwell on. It has a little lake, there is a pool, and there is a fenced in dog run. But... More
