The Stanley Park Rose Garden is a large garden of mainly roses right in the middle of Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada.
The garden was created by the Kiwanis Club in 1920.
There is no fee to visit the Rose Garden, it is completely free for all to visit and enjoy!
It has over 3,500 perenials, annuals, and bulbs. There are many roses of many different varieties. There are little signs in each bed that says what type of rose are planted there. We are always amazed at the many different colours of roses there are here.
In addition to a few paved paths, there is grass around all the flower beds that you can walk on to get up close to see the roses in their full glory!
Also in the Rose Garden is a large arbor that has climbing plants.
If you are visiting on the weekends, you can usually see a wedding party taking photos in the garden. So, in addition to just viewing the roses, it is a great location for taking photos!
You can easily spend a few hours walking around and enjoying the Rose Garden. After which you could go to the Stanley Park Pavilion which is close by to have a drink or bite to eat at Stanley's Bar and Grill or use the Washrooms.
So, the Stanley Park Rose Garden is worth a visit if you are visiting Stanley Park from June to September!
