If you like to take pictures this is a great place to try to catch depth within the colors

When the roses are in blum, the Park of Roses is absolutely beautiful. In the warmer months they do a concert series every Sunday evening, perfect to stroll through & listen to the music & see all of the roses. It also boasts lots of fields and areas to play sports or just to sit & relax.

Whetstone is a great small part, suitable for large or small groups. The Rose Garden is beautiful! I love it for photo shoots of either the flowers or people who want some nice ambiance.

The Park of Roses is a little gem in the heart of Clintonville/Columbus. Beautiful horticulture (not just roses), free concerts on Sundays in the park, lots to do - picnics, hiking, biking. Also check out the Annual Rose festival in June.
