El Paso Municipal Rose Garden
Stop and smell the roses during your trip and visit the El Paso Municipal Rose Garden, the popular 4-acre public garden featuring nearly 1500 rose bushes spanning over 430 different varieties!
This garden began with 200 roses planted in 1958 by the El Paso Rose Society and the City of El Paso. Today it has grown into the massive collection you see today tended by both the El Paso Rose Society and the El Paso Master Gardeners, a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service created in 2007. These volunteer gardeners provide rose care, give visitors information when requested, and even perform group tours during peak bloom times. They also help assist the El Paso Rose Society with their annual public pruning event in February.
During your group's visit you will be able to self-explore the wide walkways, raised beds, and waterfall plaza areas as you admire the trees, shrubs, and of course, roses. There are various garden sections throughout, such as the Miniature Rose Garden, Earth-Kind Rose Garden, and Rose Family Native Plants Garden. Each year new additions are made to the garden and evaluated for their climate adaptability, though most you see are repeat bloomers. This garden is 1 of only 100 to be considered an AARS Garden, or All American Rose Selection Garden.
*Note the garden is open each year from March 1 - November 30th.
