This is the original rose garden. The park is large and has a fountain, a gazebo, a softball diamond, picnic tables, playground equipment and a community center and pool.

Unless you're a rose freak or gardening maniac, you can walk thru this place in 45 mins. Beautiful roses of all types; obviously dependent on time of season you go will display the best bloom & variety. Hey....its a free walk-thru!

Have passed this park many times but not on a regular basis until more recently. Finally saw the roses in bloom and it made me think of a smaller version of the rose garden in Washington Park. A beautiful spot!
