  • Homeless community lives here, don’t go! We saw many homeless tarp houses in the gardens, we did not stop. Also many other homeless around the area asking for money.

  • Fortunately we were visiting in April and the grass was green with a lot of families visiting and a nice variety of roses in bloom. We were there in the evening and it wasn't hard to find parking.

  • Not quite as pretty as the rose garden just a few blocks away towards Santa Clara, but this place has a ton of roses! According to the signage, the Guadalupe Gardens Heritage Rose Garden has over 150 rose species and hybrids, organized in concentric circles. The garden is connected to the rest of the Guadalupe River trail, and is definitely worth a visit when the roses are in bloom.
  • Lots of roses that are well kept. The parking lot had some homeless hanging around. Neat to see all the variations of roses. If you are looking to kill 30 to 45 minutes and in the area it’s not a bad place to visit.
