On the northeast shore of Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, visitors will find this beautiful sloping rose garden. This lovely oasis of rolling hills features a carefully tended and sweet-smelling glen of blooming flowers bordered by two fountains. The garden, which opened in 1907, is the second-oldest public rose garden in the country and is a favorite site for weddings. The roses bloom from mid-June to late-September, yet the garden season is extended by the appearance of spring bulbs and various perennials that bloom throughout the spring, summer and fall months. Across from the rose garden is a tranquil Japanese rock garden, restored in recent years after the original had all but disappeared. Adjacent to the rock garden is the Roberts Bird Sanctuary.
