Best City Park: Park of Roses

From the March 28, 2013 edition

The cliche suggests life is more enjoyable when you take time to savor the aroma of delicate flowers.

Yea, just try doing that at the Park of Roses. It might take an entire lifetime.

Clintonville’s Park of Roses is a 13-acre park that features more than 400 varieties blooming on bushes and climb structures.

No wonder it’s popular among wedding planners, photographers, families seeking a relaxing afternoon stroll or couples wiling away the summer hours with a book, blanket and the roses’ sweet fragrance breezing by on a cool wind.

Yea, you know, that does sound heavenly. Is it summer yet?
