The first 200 roses were delicately planted in April 1958 by the El Paso Rose Society and the City of El Paso. The garden opened its doors to the public in May 1959. Today, you can find thousands of roses bushes across the harder with special sections for miniature roses, native plants from the Rose Family, and Earth-Kind roses.

Most of the rose bushes of the garden are repeat-bloomers and continue its blooming until early winter.
El Paso Master Gardeners deserve some recognition as they have been volunteering at the El Paso Municipal Rose Garden Since 2007. They do deadheading, pruning, weeding, rose inventories, and other duties to keep the garden looking adorable. The volunteers provide rose care and additional information to garden visitors. They also conduct group tours during peak bloom times. With its gorgeous footpaths and a large number of shady places, the garden makes a great area to spend some time in summer.
