Welcome to the Gardens of the American Rose Center. This self-guided walking tour will help you experience our gardens beyond the traditional map tour. We hope you enjoy your visit. You are in the lower public parking lot and can begin the numbered walking portion of the garden tour. We ask that you park only in designated parking lots and not along the roadway. Privately owned vehicles are not allowed in the garden area. As you exit your car, please walk along the paved pathway to the front porch of the Thigpen-Herold Administration Building for a garden map.
