A lovely venue for picnics, stroller walks or a romantic walk. This park, with its lovely fountain, glorious roses and shady redwood trees, is a great place for a family or couple to spend time.

It's an awesome place to go for a short walk, or a picnic, or to play frisbee and other games. Very family oriented.

Sorry! I just saw this. I hope you visited the rose garden. We don't cut back the roses until much later. Still in full bloom in September!
