This is a beautiful place to stroll in the middle of a neighborhood - but I wouldn't go out of my way to drive far to get here. Many of San Jose Unified High Schools used this park for graduation ceremonies.

With over 4,000 roses, it is quite the destination, a place to visit when in San Jose. Would November is the end of the season, with winter approaching, there area still many rose beds in bloom. The tranquility is worth the visit.

We went three weeks ago and it was still gorgeous. I'd think you'd still be able to see lovely blooms now.

There are some. Not as robust as May and June. There will be limit d blooms until December, the roses are trimmed for the winter in early January. Mother's day in May is the hight and spectacular.

No way!!! The park has been open for 80 years without a fee. I might suggest you pick up lunch at the Park Station Hashery right around the corner have have a picnic!
