The Rose Garden is operated by the Los Angeles City Department of Recreation and Parks and has been since 1928. The Rose Garden is visited by hundreds of Angelinos and tourists each year. It is often used as an urban oasis by the local Community as a place of quiet and refuge. On most weekends between April and November, it is the location of choice for weddings and photographs of family gatherings.

The Rose Garden is opened daily from 9:00 am - sunset. It is closed to the public from January 1st - March 15th of each year for annual maintenance.
