The Rose Garden 

Looking from the Lower Rose Garden to the Shelter House

One of the most romantic gardens, the Rose Garden was built with 4,000 tons of Palo Pinto sandstone and completed in 1933. After years of work the Rose Garden was rededicated on October 15, 2017.  This premier garden should be on your do not miss list.
