Most of the beds were full of weeds, plants have not been pruned and many have black spot on leaves. Surely there is a garden club or some volunteers that could help maintain the gardens. This is the most poorly maintained garden I have visited...More

We often go walking around the rose garden and it's beautiful to see all the roses. Very nice to walk or for a picnic.

My boyfriend and I ended up here on one of our Sunday afternoon dates. It’s such a beautiful place to walk around and find a bench to sit on and take in all the many colors of the roses. Lots of places to take pictures.

A lovely place to enjoy roses and nature in the center of Silicon Valley. Bring a picnic or just stroll amongst the hundreds of rose varieties. Just down the street is the epic Egyptian Museum.

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.
