RLT will be closed Monday, May 29th in recognition of Memorial Day. Special Events rental hours will be Tuesday, May 30th from 9am - noon.

Listed as a Special Events Venue with the City of Raleigh Parks & Recreation system, the Raleigh Rose Garden is open to the public 7 days a week.  While it can be reserved for weddings and other special occasions, we encourage everyone to come out to appreciate the roses and enjoy time spent here with family and friends.

One of three accredited gardens in the Carolinas, the Raleigh Rose Garden at RLT is the display garden for all new roses presented by the All American Rose Society. The grounds include sixty beds with 56 varieties of roses with hybrid teas, floribundas, grandifloras, miniatures and antiques.


For rentals, the Raleigh Rose Garden is an ideal spot for smaller, simpler events. Decorations are unnecessary with the parade of roses that bloom from late May until fall’s first frost in October or November. Both the fountain and the small stone shelter at either end of the garden make lovely back drops for wedding ceremonies and other gatherings.

If you are looking for a natural setting with little or no extra decoration, the Raleigh Rose Garden is an excellent choice.


We are currently taking reservations for events through to December 31, 2017. Interested in reserving the Rose Garden? Download the Rose Garden reservations document
