Morcom Rose Garden

The Rose Garden was constructed in 1932 as a project of the Works Progress Administration. It was named in honor of former Oakland mayor Fred N. Morcom. As well as thousands of roses, the garden features winding walkways, a reflecting pool, and a cascading fountain. The gardens are in bloom from Mothers Day in May through October 31 of each year.


Admission is free.
