Exploring the Tyler Rose Garden

Table of Contents

This weekend, Harrison and I explored the beauty of the Tyler Rose Garden in Tyler, TX. As the nation’s largest rose garden, I had high expectations, and it didn’t disappoint. And as such, for any of you who want a weekend getaway from Dallas, here are ten aspects of the Rose Garden that you can expect on your visit. Check out my post on things to do in Tyler for more travel ideas!

What to expect:

1. Roses, roses, roses!

(You were probably expecting this one.)

2. Fountains

You’ll find a few fountains and ponds throughout the park. Grab your coins and make a wish!

3. Tall, majestic trees

Gigantic trees are everywhere in Tyler, but they feel especially majestic among the roses.

4. A lush green canopy

To really make you feel like you’re in a fairytale.

5. Bridges and overlooks

6. A trellis or two

Because what garden is complete without one?

7. Brick archways

This landmark is the original entrance to the Rose Garden. Read more about the historical aspects of the rose garden here.

8. Gazebos

For when the hot Texas sun has you begging for some shade!

9. Manicured walkways

So you don’t get lost.
