TUCSON - The Reid Park Rose Garden has received the Pacific Southwest District 2012 Garden of the Year Award.
The Pacific Southwest District of the American Rose Society presented the award in the fall of 2012, after it received the nomination submitted by the Rose Society of Tucson, but word of the award was just made public on April 23, 2013.
The Rose Garden represents an on-going partnership with the Friends of the Reid Park Rose Garden. Members of that group volunteer regularly to maintain the property.
The garden originally opened in 1960 with 232 rose beds, and it shows off more than 100 species of roses with 800 individual plants.
The Rose Garden is typically in full bloom in the spring during March and April and in the fall around October and November.
It's located in Reid Park, at 22nd and Country Club, with a large gazebo, and it's open from sunrise to 5pm, every day of the year, except for special reserved events.
