Spring is here in the San Francisco Bay area and roses are beginning to bloom at Osage Station Park in Danville, California. Osage Station Park is a beautiful, large park in Danville. It’s known for its massive rose gardens. These gardens line paths all throughout the park, and there’s a large garden section by the school adjacent to the park, as well as by the playground.
In the summer, volunteers maintain the park’s gardens and grow beautiful rosebushes. The gardens have been there for many years, and there are a lot of different varieties of roses grown. It’s a wonderful place to walk and to explore different types of roses, which come in a variety of different colors, sizes–and aromas.
Although most of the rosebushes have just started growing for the season and don’t have flowers, a few of the climbing roses at Osage Station Park are already in bloom.
These mainly climb on the fences along the trails and paths. They’re beautiful small roses, and the ones currently blooming are a brilliant red color. It’s a perfect natural backdrop on the fence, with a lovely stream and wooded area behind.
You can find these roses in bloom mainly along the path beside the athletic fields closest to the entrance to the park. As the season continues, expect to see the other large rose gardens at Osage Station Park bloom brilliantly.
Especially as we get further into the summer months, it’s a wonderful place to go for a walk and to see some roses. If you’re looking for an opportunity to stop and smell the flowers (literally), this is a great place to do it. It’s also a great place to welcome spring now that the season is finally here.
