We missed the roses by about one week, We could only imagine what this large garden looked like! The garden contains a nice tribute to our military.

There is some shade from trees. There is little else to see besides the roses. Just to be 100 characters.......

Very peaceful place to sit. I love the quiet atmosphere in the midst of a busy city center. I was drawn to the place because of a Geocache, but stayed a while to enjoy the silence. I understand that this is a popular wedding venue....More

This is a beautiful garden. A great place to get ideas for your own plantings. The garden is very well maintained by volunteers.

I liked how beautiful all the roses are and how great they smell. Wendy does a great job taking care of the roses for the College. She is the most knowledgeable horticulturist in the valley. Great job.

Even though I was in the area just for geo-caching, I took some time to smell the roses. So many different varieties i never even knew existed. It was an enjoyable and educational stroll.

We love visiting the Rose Garden....there's something for everyone to enjoy. We visit here every Easter and Mother's Day. HOWEVER...beware of spiders. Last time we were there my 7 year old was bit twice on the arm and required ER care to treat the bites.

Their website says April/May/June + October/November/December are the best months to see blooming roses here in the Valley of the Sun. Enjoy!
