Walk, Wheel, and Stroll to Smell the Roses at Minnetrista
Muncie, IN—The Rose Garden at Minnetrista has a new path and access for visitors to stop and smell the roses!
Walk around and enjoy fifty-nine varieties of fragrant and colorful Hybrid tea roses and English Roses on the newly installed brick walkway surrounding the gazebo in the Rose Garden at Minnetrista.
Steve Scott, grounds supervisor at Minnetrista said, “We saw a need to create a more inviting walk area around the Rose Garden and gazebo. The space used to simply be landscaped with grass, which at times, made it difficult to provide ample and cleanly areas for visitors having weddings or events, and those who came to enjoy the roses. We installed wide, brick walkways that encircle the gazebo and are compliant with the accessibility guidelines for individuals who may have impaired mobility, or require a more accommodating path in which to enjoy the area.”
Members of the East Central Indiana Rose Garden Society help tend the roses throughout the season, along with Minnetrista gardeners and seasonal staff. The Rose Garden at Minnetrista is a favorite garden location enjoyed by many visitors. From June through October, the fragrant air and surrounding color from the roses is a visual and aromatic experience for the senses!
