Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens information
Known for its collection of 15,000 rose bushes, the 102-acre Elizabeth Park was donated to the city by a wealthy industrialist, who asked that it be named for his wife. Planted with more than 900 varieties, the gardens are covered in blooms in June and July, but they flower, if less profusely, well into fall. During the summer months, concerts are held at the park.
