    Tyler Municipal Rose Garden

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We visited the Tyler Municipal Rose Garden while we were there in the Spring before the roses blossomed, but you'll see from my photos that there was an abundance of charm in this beautiful garden even then.

    The garden expands over 14 acres, which contains 38,000 rose bushes in 500 different varieties. Can you imagine the riot of colors and scents when they reach their full potential in May through October?

    There are several distinct garden areas: The Rose Garden, Idea Garden, Camellia Garden, Heritage Roses Garden, Meditation Garden, Gazebo and the Day Lily Garden.

    As you walk the pathways, you'll encounter picturesque fountains, koi ponds and places for reflection. A rose museum and gift shop are located at the entrance.

    Hours are Mon.-Fri. 9am-4:30pm; Sat. 10am-4:30pm; Sun. 1:30pm-4:30pm. Closed on Mondays, November-February.

    Admission is $3.50 for Aduilts, $2.00 for children age 3-11

    This is probably the most famous attraction in Tyler. As the name says, this garden is full of roses of every imaginable color and size. It is supposed to be famous all over Texas and this is one of the reasons why Tyler is called the rose capital of America.
    If you like roses, this is your place.

    Rose festival in October

    by Segolily Written Aug 8, 2009

    I guess in Texas the flowers can bloom more than once a year. I think there is a spring bloom, but the Rose festival is in October and it would be a lot of fun to attend. I wandered through the nice gardens when things weren't too active, but still it was a beautiful place and so many different roses!
