Walk through beautiful displays of roses, weeping willow trees, and other flower varieties when you visit the Malcolm Gross Memorial Rose Garden in Allentown, PA. This beautiful attraction is a great place to visit during the warm summer months when all the flowers burst into bloom. Take a stroll on the paved paths and snap some great photos.

What travelers are saying:

This garden is a lovely retreat to make on your own or with others. You can simply walk around and gaze at the beauty around you or pull up a bench and let you mind go while the birds sing you a melody.

Lovely setting to breath deep, relax and enjoy!

The garden is carefully maintained and always in great condition. It is very easy to park right on the street (Broadway) and walk right in and you can't beat the admission price - FREE! It is great that it connects to the walking trail and can easily and safely be walked to from Cedar Beach Park or Muhlenberg College or Cedar Crest College.

It is lovely to walk in, it is great for wedding photos - regardless of the season. The stream that runs through the Rose Garden is beautiful. There are picnic tables it is fun to go there for an impromptu lunch with friends and family.

Roses of many colors

Awesome blooms even in the Fall! We designed gardens. Definitely planning on going back! Great walking path and picnic pavilions nearby. Cedar Beach park is across the street too.

Go there!

This has been an Allentown attraction for many years. There is no better place for an enjoyable stroll through magnificently maintained rose gardens. Many area people have come here for their wedding photographs, so when the roses are in bloom this place will be busy. I know of no one person who has not been impressed with the Rose Garden

A little gem in Allentown!

Beautiful place for photos, or just to take in the scenery. Street parking can be a little crowded on summer weekends, though.

An Allentown Treasure

The Rose Garden is a magical spot, with well maintained plots not only of roses (in many varieties) but also dazzling summer flowers in the "old fashioned garden." A very pleasant spot for a leisurely stroll, with so much beauty to delight the eye.

Beautiful park, especially when in full bloom!

This was a lovely stroll through the roses... a creek gently runs through it, statues and gazebos, perfect location for pictures for prom, weddings or whatever.

Beautiful

It’s really nice to walk around with the relaxing breeze from the small creek. The smell of some of the roses. And the best of all it’s really popular for photographers to do shoot for wedding and maternity photos.

Rose Garden

Awesome. Well maintained. Loved it. Just a wonderful place to relax and take in the scenery. If you are into geocaching there are caches there.

Small But Sweet

This rose garden in the summertime is beautiful! It’s not real large, but it’s definitely worth going to! Bring your camera for some wonderful photo opportunities! It is immaculately groomed and you have the park all around the rose garden to walk on the trails, picnic, jog, etc...and that’s wonderful too! Very picturesque! Very tranquil! It’s truly a beautiful place to visit and there is no charge!
