great place to read a book, stroll through the different roses and get some exercise. It is just a block from Grand Ave near the popular Camino restaurant, a great stop near Lake Merritt.

Beautiful is the Morcom Rose Garden in Oakland. The aroma of blooming roses ensues that we stop being stressed and stop to smell the flowers

Great little hidden gem in the middle of Piedmont area in Oakland. The roses are beautiful during the Spring and Summer, and even when they aren't in bloom this is still a pretty place to relax and chill out. Lots of steps (as you have to descend down to it from almost all access points) so it's great to go if you want to get some jogging on.

First to Review

This is a gorgeous rose garden and quite a treat to visit. It's also one of those places that you pass by for years and don't really know that it's there. Perhaps it is also overshadowed by the better known, but no more beautiful Berkeley Rose Garden.

Gayle and I looked at the Morcom Rose Garden as a possible wedding venue. Unfortunately, the lack of nearby parking and an interior reception option takes this option off our list. However, that shouldn't stop anyone else!

In any event, we will be back again soon to stroll hand-in-hand through this well loved, serene, and "secret" urban canyon.
