"A visit to the garden provides an excellent opportunity to learn about roses and the many varieties available," according to the Somerset County Park Commission. "A visitor interested in adding roses to the home landscape can see the color, size, form, and quality of each rose variety and choose those most suitable for their own gardens. It is also a great place to get away from it all."
