September 15, 1984. Churches wouldn't have me cause I hadn't come to Jesus so we did it in front of God herself. Great neighborhood if you can swing the mortgage/rent. Well cared for Rose bushes. Last memory there was walking the Mother In-Law in a wheelchair through the garden. Miss you Cuca...

Can be a very quiet place with a friend, bring a book to read. Or, just sit on the grass enjoy the sun

They say you should stop and smell the roses. Their is no better place. And the price is right. "Free" so many beautiful roses to see. I would highly recommend you making a stop if in the neighborhood.

Beautiful Roses in well kept gardens. Be sure to come when they are in bloom. The park also has facilities for outdoor weddings and other events like graduations.

This time of the year the Rose Garden is beautiful. You can walk 4 times around the park which becomes 1 mile. Beautiful place to visit.

Beautiful rose garden maintained mostly by volunteers is must see in spring. When in full bloom (usually in April) it's spectacular with dozens of rose varieties in all colors imaginable.

A beautiful garden with benches under the shade of the Redwood trees. Rose bushes are well kept and blooming, even in November. Clean toilets.

This rose garden is one of the best. Close to the airport and downtown. Nice quiet park in town. I've visited it multiple times. It's always clean and in bloom. There's never a crowd. One of the undiscovered pleasures in San Jose.
