    Various varieties of roses are naturally create a de facto solidarity was so good to let go. Rose floral scents, even plain and coloured roses are paired with each other, it's a beautiful place.

    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.

    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.
