  • There were definitely some pretty flowers here, however it seemed a bit neglected. I do realize it is run by volunteers. It's a nice place to walk around, but don't go out of your way to go here.
  • The place is very neglected, and yes there are roses but I went in summer and was expecting to see a lot of colors and I wasn't what I expected.
  • Heritage rose garden has several verities.but looks neglected with out proper demakation to look like garden.most of the flowers are shedding petals. Very few flowers are looking fresh.
  • Abundant selection, smaller roses, large area, parking can be very tight, free, slight walk over to garden area, needs additional maintaining
  • This place is great. It accepts volunteers to help with the upkeep. I loved to lay in the grass and watch the planes land at SJC, but they changed the landing patterns. You can still see them, but they no longer going directly over you. Nice place for a picnic lunch.
