If you ever want an escape from the barren land that surrounds us, just pay the rose garden in Central El Paso a visit. The foliage and fragrance alone will transport you to some faraway land.

One of our city's most beautiful hidden gems, the Municipal Rose Garden was established in 1958 and opened to the public in 1959.

It is one of only 133 certified rose gardens in the United States and is home to 350 types of roses, 1600 rose bushes, a Koi fish pond, a walking path, and a plaza area. Initially one-and-a-half acres, it has since expanded to its present 4 acre size.
