San Jose Municipal Rose Garden, San Jose, Ca
Naglee Ave & Dana Ave, San Jose, CA 95126 Contact: +1 408 277 2735 Open Hours: 8a-half-hour after sunset
San Jose’s rose garden was awarded “America’s Best Rose Garden” by The All-American Rose Selections, a nonprofit association of rose growers. Not only did San Jose beat out 130 rose gardens across the country, but it’s also being called a prime example of how to take care of a community garden in a time of declining park and government budgets.
Thousands visit this park each year to view the beautiful varieties of roses in a profusion of colors and types. A very colorful location, San Jose Municipal Rose Garden also includes a few fountains and a reflecting pool, making it a great spot for a quiet stroll—even if you aren’t a rose aficionado. Take a look at the map of the place, which lists the names of all the varieties of roses.
