The Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden in Balboa Park
is one of the great rose gardens of America.
This garden has about 2,500 rose bushes representing almost
200 different varieties (all with labels).
Dick Streeper was one of the driving forces
behind the creation of this magnificent garden 37 years ago,
and he is still active in its upkeep today.
The garden is located at 2525 Park Blvd, directly across the street
from the Natural History Museum.
Here is some more info on this great treasure.
