Beautiful rose gardens. Timing is everything. Rains had damaged blooms but there were many buds that will make this place beautiful soon. Clean restrooms in the main building. Awesome walk in the fragrant gardens with the constant chirp of birds!

The visitor centre was not open as they prepared for the Christmas. The gate of the complex was open so we drove around in the garden complex. It's quite big with some woody area. We still enjoyed the roses in the front yard.

The Gardens of the American Rose Center is beautiful most of the year. Of course, when the roses are at their peak, you get the best experience. However, it is a peaceful place of solitude, and I learned a lot about the different sponsors of...More

Although it was a natural area there were few roses blooming but it could have been the time of year. Seems the grounds needed some work. The structures look unkempt and the beds needed work. I could see it would be a nice venue for...More
