Lovely garden area to walk around. Not a big place, so it doesn't"t take long to view. The visit is free and they have helpful tour guides there as well. Definitely worth a trip to see when you are in the area.

We stopped by the gardens early in the morning. The weather was perfect for it. We had a great walk through the gardens. Even though they are small it was very joyful and pretty!

Beautiful roses. A very nice place to just stroll around and sit. So hidden but next to the freeway.

If you have time to spare in Saratoga Springs this writers retreat is worth swinging into to see the fountain and rose gardens. It wont take long but has wonderful back drops for a photo shoot. Its a place to sit and reflect.

This may have some historic significance, but it's a bore. It's not a garden on par with any of the botanic gardens I have ever visited elsewhere in the Northeast (as other contributors agree). It's sort of dumpy, overrun, hardly any flower beds. Maybe it's...More
