The Memorial Rose Garden was founded in 1944 by the City and Missoula Rose Association and has more than 2,500 rose bushes. These roses are preserved to commemorate the victims and veterans of the 20th century, World War II, Vietnam, Grenada, the Persian Gulf, Panama, South Korea and other American conflicts. This small city park is adjacent to the Blue Star Memorial Highway on Brooks Street and is also home to a 12-foot bronze statue to commemorate veterans.
Under the agreement, the Rose Association is responsible for the supply, planting and general management of the rose sapling garden. The Department of Parks and Recreation is responsible for maintaining the park around the Rose Garden.
Currently, more than 600 roses have been planted on 44 beds and there are many types of them, such as mixed tea, large plants, flowers and plants and miniatures. There are many old roses in the park.
The attraction of this park is the eternal respect for those who gave their lives for the country: the flags of the United States and Montana are illuminated 24 hours a day.
