Exposition Park Rose Garden: Los Angeles, California
The Exposition Park Rose Garden is a historic 7-acre sunken garden located in Exposition Park in Los Angeles, California. It has been called “one of the city’s best-kept secrets”. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. From 1871 to 1911, the site of the rose garden was part of the city’s Agricultural Park. The rose garden area was then used for horse, camel, dog, and later automobile racing. In the 1950s, the annual pruning demonstration drew thousands of rose enthusiasts to the park. By the mid-1980s, the garden had more than 20,000 rose bushes and more than 200 varieties of roses.
