A perfect photo op in the beautiful Rose Garden at Point Defiance Park features a garden of miniature roses, arbors of climbing roses, a wishing well, and gazebos.

The garden is stroller friendly. Roll through more than one acre of rose gardens (did you know the oldest was planted in 1895!?)

Best time to go: June through September to see more than 1,500 bushes creating a rainbow of colors.

Other bonuses: Free parking! Lots of wildlife– hummingbirds!
