About the Rose Garden

This focal point of Point Defiance Park has more than an acre of rose gardens, the oldest of which was established in 1895.

The site includes a garden of miniature roses, arbors of climbing roses, a picturesque wishing well and quaint gazebos.

From June through September more than 1,500 rose bushes provide a rainbow of colors including many variegated combinations. The garden is accredited by the American Rose Society as an All American Rose selection display garden..

The Rose Garden has two areas available for rentals – the big border and the gazebo.
