The municipal Rose Garden near Memorial Park has wonderful roses.

On display at the four-acre El Paso Municipal Rose Garden are more than 1300 rose bushes of more than 300 different rose varieties. The first 200 roses were planted in April 1958 by the City of El Paso and the El Paso Rose Society. The Rose Garden opened to the public in May 1959. Initially one-and- a-half acres, it was expanded to its present size in 2005-2006 by the City of El Paso. There are special sections in the garden for Earth-Kind roses, miniature roses and native plants from the Rose Family.
