The Rose Garden was founded in 1936 with a 3 ½ -acre public garden. The garden also contains herbs, spices, a pond, a butterfly garden and other flowers. The garden is the second largest garden in Pennsylvania and one of the top ten public garden in the United States.
Funding is supplemented by donations from benefactors, a number of craft and plant shows, weddings and photogenic shoots. The workers are all volunteers except the members of the Garden Club.
There are over 2,000 rose bushes in at least 28 beds and roughly 50 different varieties. The park is free to the public. It is located on Eden Park Boulevard in McKeesport.
