This lovely rose garden is just a short walk from Old Town, but it seems miles away. It was very peaceful on a Sunday morning and even in October, most of the roses were in bloom. If you want to get a bit of exercise, and see some beautiful architecture and gardens, take a short stroll up Colorado to Orange... More

Built by Wrigley in 1929 and later donated to the Tournament of Roses, this 18,000 square foot house can only be seen by guided tours which are free. Visitors are given an excellent tour by friendly and knowledgeable guides. The house has displays about past Rose Bowl games and the Rose Queens. The gardens can also be seen and are... More

We were lucky being in the area on a Thursday when the free tours of the Wrigley home are offered at 2 & 3 pm. Tour is about an hour long and covers both floors of the house along with an 8 minute introductory movie. Nice exhibits of the parade and the history of the Rose Bowl college football game.... More

We stopped here on our way to Oregon. It was on a Wed. so we didn't get to do the tour of the home. The grounds are beautiful - lots of roses in full bloom. The people we encountered were very nice and helpful. I didn't realize until stopping that this is the actual Tournament of Roses headquarters. We love... More

The rose gardens at the Wrigley estate are pleasant to walk through this time of year with Roses in bloom. We like to wander the paths and areas. Very picturesque. Can also tour the Wrigley mansion if time allows. Nice pastoral aside when visiting Pasadena. ...

It's not huge, but it's worth a short stop to smell the roses, most of which are labeled. We saw a number of new varieties including tea roses and climbers. House was closed though, limited hours.

This is a great place to visit if you want to smell the roses. From spring to June there are lots of roses. Because they have so many different type of roses they always have roses blooming, but most grow around April/may. This is a small place, you can view it in minutes or stay longer and read all the...

OK, full disclosure - I am a docent at the Wrigley mansion. I thought I would write a review and give some helpful information. The real attraction here is the House. It is open for public tours from February through August on Thursday afternoons at 2 pm and 3 pm. If you visit at those times you can take a... More

The outside gardens were okay, but nothing spectacular, perhaps this is due to the summer heat, but I would not make a special trip out to see the gardens unless you planned to tour the house as well.
