The Gardens of the American Rose Center
The spectacular Gardens of the American Rose Center are located on a 118-acre wooded tract near Shreveport, Louisiana.
The gardens are home to the national headquarters of the American Rose Society. We are the largest park dedicated to roses in the nation. The gardens were dedicated in 1974, when the American Rose Society moved to Shreveport, Louisiana , from Columbus, Ohio. Today, the American Rose Center features more than 65 individual rose gardens and 20,000 rosebushes, with a variety of companion plants, sculptures and fountains, including the beautiful Dudley Watkins Reflection Pool.
