  • This is a modest city rose garden in the middle of a densely-populated area. Best in the spring when the roses are in bloom. Watch out for the wild turkey!

  • We were a little too early in the winter months to get the best of this lovely rose garden. It's a lovely park in a pleasant residential area but best in the late spring when the roses are in bloom.

  • An oasis at the border of Oakland and Piedmont. The place is safe and peaceful. There are hundreds of varieties of roses. The park looks small on the map but it is actually quite large. The paths are well paved and are very easy to walk. The roses are well irrigated but not adequately pruned. It requires a lot more deadheading for the roses to blossom better. But it is almost impossible to do that because of just how many brushes are there.
  • Nice little rose garden. I think it would be a nicer park with more shade trees. Beware of the steep climb down...and back up. Wide concrete steps. Friendly volunteers enjoying the roses.
