The rose garden is one of only 22 public All America Test
Gardens in the country. This test program evaluates new roses before they are
introduced to the general public.
While the main rose garden shows off the more modern
roses, the Heritage Rose Garden is the home to more historical varieties. A number
of unusual and interesting roses are found here. During its peak bloom time of early
to mid June, it is the most fragrant place to be in the park.
