The Gene Strowd Rose Garden is located at the Chapel Hill Community Center Park and contains over 350 rose bushes of 130 different varieties. The many roses in this garden represent several specific types of the flowers including hybrid teas, miniatures and climbing bushes. Each of the roses is labeled. It is truly an olfactory experience you will not want to miss. 

A copper water foundation is the centerpiece of the garden surrounded by brick walkway aisles and houses a gazebo area. The garden has been the focal point of small weddings, field trips and club meetings.

The Gene Strowd Community Rose Garden is maintained with the help of Witherspoon Rose Culture. Funding for the garden is provided by Strowd Roses, Inc. For more information please visit for history, rental information and pictures.

 It is prohibited to cut and take roses or vegetation from our park areas. Please report any acts of vandalism to the Police (911) or Parks and Recreation at 200 Plant Road, immediately.
