Memorial Rose Garden


Memorial Rose Garden, located in Missoula Montana, is part of a small city park. It was begun in 1946, and now contains more than 2,500 rose bushes, which serve as a memorial to the casualties and veterans of America's twentieth century war conflicts.  In addition to the roses, the garden features a twelve foot bronze statue.


There is no cost to view the gardens. They are open from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

  1. It would be a beautiful but somber place to visit.

  2. If they planted a rose bush for everyone they would sadly run out of room.
