Morcom Rose Garden

The Amphitheatre of Roses is deeply nestled in a residential area. It is an enchanting location for weddings, renewals, memorial celebrations and ceremonies of all sorts. The enchantment of the floral landscape is breath taking when preparing to tie the knot in matrimonial bliss. A multitude of seasonally changing blossoms provides the perfect backdrop for photo opportunities. Winding walkways and wandering paths border the reflecting pool, graceful stairways and fountain cascade, offering wedding and party participants ample opportunity to stroll this magical garden. The Garden can be accessed by patrons on foot or by wheelchair along the newly paved paths through the scenic rose beds. The Amphitheatre of Roses is a fantasy land of thousands of fragrant roses which are in bloom from Mother’s Day in May through October 31st. This enchanting garden is the home to thousands of exotic and delightful roses, truly a hidden treasure and jewel of Oakland.
The end of May and June are the ultimate season that the roses are in its full bloom. The roses are in full bloom again at the end of July and beginning of August and middle and end of September.

The garden may be reserved after Mother’s Day through October 31. Reservations are booked on a first come first serve basis.
