A free public park that you can stroll around, sit and visit and just enjoy the flowers. Interesting to see the varieties names for Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Julia Childs and others. We were there over Easter weekend and still plenty of blooms.

Their website says April/May/June + October/November/December are the best months to see blooming roses here in the Valley of the Sun. Enjoy!
