This is a beautiful place to come for a walk or to admire the many different types of roses on display. Bring a picnic and make a day of it!

During a trip in 2005 my brother and I came upon this park quite by accident. We decided to walk the grounds and we are so glad that we did. The rose gardens were stunning and made for some beautiful photo ops.
