Description

Elizabeth Park is in the national inventory of historical places. The park is the first community rose garden in the USA and the third biggest rose garden in the whole nation at present. The park features just over one hundred acres of formal landscaped gardens, green areas, leisure and entertainment areas, footpaths, and a Pond House Café. Visit to admire the beauty of the gardens and territory.

The Rose Garden is in bloom: June-October. The arches bloom just one time, from the middle of June to early July.

Roses: Theodor Wirt started designing the Rose Garden in September 1903 and inaugurated it in June 1904. The Rose Garden started with 190 different types of roses. Nowadays, the Conservatory supervises and runs the Rose Garden and must collect over $100,000 each year to examine roses, complete daylight summer gardens, services from suppliers, as addition to fertilizers, mulch, lime and substitute roses. The garden has over 15,000 rose shrubs and 800 types of old and new roses.

Restaurant: If you prefer to walk the light path and buy food in the park, you can have lunch at the cafe “Elizabeth Pond House” or order a visit. You may be happy to spend a couple of dollars in the cafe, as a share of the route you traveled will come back to help finance the park.

Hours: Elizabeth Park is available 365 days a year, from sunrise to sunset, and is FREE to the public. Entrance tickets to the park are free.
