Beauty in Bloom – El Paso Municipal Rose Garden Now Open
El Pasoans can stop and smell the roses again at the El Paso Municipal Rose Garden. After closing for the season in November, the green space escape from the desert landscape that surrounds us has reopened.
The four-acre garden is a jewel and a mini oasis that features a waterfall, Koi Pond and plaza area, and is home to over 400 types of roses and an average of 1,500 rose bushes.
Not only is it one of El Paso’s more visually stunning landmarks, it is one of only 117 certified rose gardens in the United States.
And while it's been around since 1958, it's still an undiscovered treasure to many El Pasoans. Even some life-long residents are surprised to learn there is such a beautiful public area within our city limits.
If Instagram-perfect roses blooming everywhere like the photo above is what you’re looking for, then April-May is a great time to visit this hidden gem as it's peak time for the spring blooms.
How to Get There
For a walk among nature without getting out of the city, or if you just need a peaceful place to sit and Zen out for a bit, pay the garden a visit. The El Paso Municipal Rose Garden is located at 1702 N. Copia, on the corner of Aurora Avenue and Copia.
It's free and open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. through November 30.
