Washington Park, Part 3 - International Rose Test Garden

Just steps downhill from the Japanese Garden is the International Rose Test Garden. The 5 acre hillside garden was established in 1917 and is used as a testing ground for new varieties of roses. This city-maintained garden bestows awards on each year's best roses. The variety of colors and types or roses were amazing and made for a very pleasant stroll through the row after row of roses.
