Designed by landscape architect LeRoy Brady, the Desert Southwest's largest rose garden, where nearly 8000 rose bushes bloom in the desert. Take time to smell the roses by taking a stroll through The Garden and view its tremendous number of vibrant colors, flower forms and growth habits. The terrace areas of the East and West gardens can be reserved for intimate settings such as weddings, music ensembles, theatrical readings, and art displays. Tours are also available.

This is a must see in late March and early April. There was a huge assortment of colours and types of roses that produce the most incredible fragrances. Will return next year.

What a wonderful free activity. The roses are meticulously kept. There were many different varieties of roses. And there were many more roses than we expected to see. We had a very enjoyable visit to the unexpected gem!

It was actually my 85 year old dad who toured the MCC Rose Garden. He loved it. He said it was a beautiful enjoyable walk. He was surprised by how nice it was.
