Have You Ever Seen the Rose Garden at Heather Farm Park? Here’s What You’re Missing

Heather Farm Park in Walnut Creek, California is a stunning place. There’s a giant fishing pond, acres of sports field, and even a natural lake.

But there’s an even more amazing feature at this East Bay park. The Gardens at Heather Farm Park are a free, volunteer-run outdoor garden with native flora, as well as hundreds of rose bushes.

The Bay Area Telegraph visited the Gardens at Heather Farm Park, and the roses are in full bloom! Here’s a look, in photos.

You can see Heather Farms’ pond from the gardens.

The main section of rose bushes is planted in an elaborate design. More bushes also cover the nearby hillside.

A gazebo at the center of the garden is a popular place for weddings.

There are hundreds of rose bushes in every color of the rainbow.

The whole garden is free! If you haven’t visited yet, you’re missing out.
