Rose Garden Stormwater Improvements Project

In late Fall 2019, the City of Raleigh will initiate stormwater improvements construction in the Rose Garden. The project will continue into early Spring 2020.

During construction, a large section of the Rose Garden will be closed for public use, including the area between the theater building and the Rose Garden as well as the areas around the fountain and arbor. It is anticipated that other areas of the garden should remain open to the public, including the amphitheater and shelter area.

Due to the nature of the project, Rose Garden rentals, which are coordinated by RLT, will be suspended until further notice. We will update the Rose Garden page on our website and the Rose Garden Facebook page as we learn more. We recommend JC Raulston Arboretum as an alternate venue for rentals in the meantime. You can see a full list of rental & special event venues here.
