Hundreds of varieties, thousands of flowers! The perfect place for a quiet walk, with several benches around water fountains to just relax and take in the wonders and smells of roses. Don’t forget your camera!

The rose gardens were lovely, even though most of the roses were no longer in bloom. It was very peaceful to wander along the trails, over the bridges, and relax under the gazebo.

Not the months to visit the gardens. October and its festival, I guess, are much better as the roses now are dying/fading badly and in great need of pruning. The setting and layout are lovely and the staff friendly.

I didn't know that Tyler had a rose festival. This garden was gorgeous. When you stop for a visit, you must take the time to see the museum.

Don’t skip this place on your visit. I live in Tyler and often take visiting family to the gardens and museum. Every time I visit I find something new. Great staff as well. And reasonably priced.

There is no admission fee. Don't miss the museum and gift shop! The museum tells the story of the TYLER ROSES and contains memorabilia of the former Tyler Rose Parades.
