The Lake Harriet Rose Garden is a great place to spend an afternoon--almost every time I've been I've seen a wedding or prom kids taking pictures in the rose garden. Perfect spot for a romantic picnic!

Blink and you'll miss it, but if you don't you'll be glad you stopped. Countless varieties of not only roses, but many different kinds of flowers. A photographer's paradise.

Part of the larger Lake Harriet park located on the northeast end. It is a free area with simple paths between a wide variety of roses. Not specifically worth a special trip but if at Lake Harriet on a walk, worth 10-15 minutes.

I didnt know this existed until today. Small but cute. Definetly worth walking through! Free to go to and it wasnt very busy. There is a small paved path. No chairs for elderly to sit if walking through.

I've taken my mother and wife here a number of times. Right beside Lake Harriet if you want to get out on a sunny day. The flowers are absolutely amazing and sure to delight if you have a green thumb or just an eye for the aesthetic.

I love visiting the Rose Garden...such a calm, beautiful, peaceful place with flowers that are all so fragrant and colorful. I can never take enough photos, that obviously don't do the flowers justice. I guarantee you'll love it here.

I love visiting the garden. Explore the surrounding area as well. Lakewood Cemetery has history and beauty unequaled. Check out "Uptown" while you are in the area.

I love this place you can walk around the gardens and smell the flowers, read a book on the glassy hill or next to a water fountain. The smell of the roses are amazing. Bring a picnic lunch and a blanket a ball or some bubbles for the kids and have some fun. Or just relax. This place is all... More
