Welcome to 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 nation’s
largest park dedicated to roses. The gardens
were dedicated in 1974, when the American
Rose Society headquarters 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.
