Morcom Municipal Rose Garden: #Oakland Summer Bucket List

Monday, May 27, 2013

I am always going on and on about how great Oakland is. But it's better to show and tell. This summer my family will be exploring Oakland's most popular sites and some hidden gems:

#1
Morcom Municipal Rose Garden: This 7-acre floral oasis is tucked away in North Oakland on 700 Jean Street off Grand Avenue adjacent to the Piedmont, California border. It is home to dozens of roses that bloom from May-October and is fragrant as it is beautiful. We witnessed just how intoxicating this enchanted garden can be while watching a middle-aged couple make out on a bench like two hormonal teenagers. The facilities can be rented for weddings.

Looks like a lovely garden! I don't see many yellow roses, which is a shame, because they are so pretty!

How beautiful! My parents got married in a rose garden and I've always been fascinated by them looking at their wedding pictures growing up. There's one here in Brooklyn that I've been to with my mom, but I hope to make it to next month with Nia!
