Bit of a late review but it was a beautiful garden even off season before the roses are out. The gardeners are there tending the roses and maintenance is ongoing but still a peaceful place.

Huge collection of heritage roses. Heritage roses are different shapes, sizes, and fragrances. Don't expect uniform rows of manicured roses all of the same type. This garden is an archive of rare roses. Its an opportunity to see many different types of roses that are not commonly grown. Look closely and smell the roses, the small rose with so-so color might have best fragrance.

There are places I remember from my youth, this being one of them. A beautifully maintained ROSE GARDEN in the midst of the city. So RARE for San Jose. So for some delightful aromas and a pleasant respit from the busy day, this might well make your day. Bring a book, a flute or an instrument and be inspired in the presence of flaura in bloom!

If you are a Rose Fan or are looking for a special place to enjoy some natural beauty and some open space in a crowded city, the Heritage Rose Garden is a good spot. Close to the airport, free parking.

Not sure what we expected but were pleasantly surprised with the history and the stunning examples of roses. We saw plants which dated back to 1820 and earlier. As noted on the grounds, many of the plants were collected from un-kept Victorian cemeteries and abandoned housed. The varieties were beautiful. And there is a wonderful children's garden to explore.
