The lower portion of the Rose Garden will be closed this weekend due to renovations to the turf after a long hot, dry summer with record attendance. The top gate will be open to allow for visual access, just not foot traffic. Enjoy Fall Festival activities at the top of the hill, and be sure to vote for your favorite scarecrow along Scarecrow Walk (the Oak Allée). Click here for hours.
