I arrived at a dilapidated car park from which I could see a stray dog. I felt the moment I left my car someone would probably move in, possibly the poor homeless guy sleeping on a nearby grassy knoll. I walked in by the rough, unkempt paths into the rose circle centre, passing dying, sprawling and overgrown rose bushes. It looks like it hasn't been maintained for months. I felt very sorry for the park and felt it's emptiness. It looks like a well-meaning community project gone wrong. Even if it was better kept I still felt it would have a slightly barren, out of place feel. I hope someone can prove me wrong.

Gorgeous Rose Garden. It's nice to come for a visit and see the flowers, or also a good place to go and just sit and relax for a while.

Although there's little shade unless you walk over to the park next door, it is so beautiful that it's worth it. And the smell of roses always permeates the air. Place to go for serene beauty any time of year, though May is absolutely the best.

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.

Thank moot
