Activity Overview

San Jose's Municipal Rose Garden is a jewel in the city's crown. Located just outside of downtown this 5 1/2 acre Garden is home to over 4,000 rose shrubs with 189 varieties represented. From April until November the Garden opens its doors' to the public who can come to see these beautiful flowers in full bloom.

Things to Do

  • The majority of roses in the Garden are hybrid-teas, the most famous type of rose which is characterized by a single high centered bloom per stem.
  • There are many other types which can be enjoyed too from floribundas, which have a cluster of blooms at the head of each stem, to climbers which use long stems to rise up the fences which surround the Garden.
  • The variety of rose types here ensures a feast for the eyes as you encounter different colors and forms. In early May when the majority of roses are at their most beautiful stage there is also a gorgeous range of fragrances which you can take in as you wander around.
