The rose garden is beautiful, worth the visit and great for picture taking. Also, there is a nice playground for children. Relaxing and peaceful.

I love wandering through the rose garden, especially during the Summer and Fall. The roses are beautiful and the setting is lovely.

We have been here a few times. It's always beautiful and well maintained. We've also had professional photographs taken here and they came out spectacular!

This little piece of Schenectady is such a beautiful place to go and take pictures with your family. I have also had clients go here with a photographer to do family pictures for their new home. Just lovely

The rose garden is a beautiful place but the rest of the park needs a great deal of cleaning up. We walk through the park often and are ashamed of the condition and filth of the duck pond, the fountain pond and the courts and fields.
