The Colorful Lyndale Park Rose Garden

Minneapolis does it again with I.5 acres of roses in the city! The Lyndale Park Rose Garden was the second rose garden open to the public in the United States.

It is located directly next to Lake Harriet, making it easy to see both in the same outing. It is best to visit late June to September when the garden is in full bloom.

This colorful garden was originally designed by the famous Theodore Wirth. Actually, the layout hasn’t changed since it was first planted in 1907.

Not only will you enjoy the roses, but it also features a florentine fountain, bird sanctuary, and an ancient sundial.
