Founded in 1931, the garden features over 1,500 roses behind tall green hedges. It was designed by Arthur Shurcliff, who later worked under Frederick Law Olmsted, the designer of both the Fens and Central Park in New York City.
On Thursday, as Golfers wrapped up day one at the U.S. Open in Brookline and Celtics fans were gearing up for Game 6 of the NBA Finals, WBZ's Karyn Regal headed to the garden for a moment of Zen.
"I came here and I was like wow." Tomaso, an exchange student from Italy said, as the smells of roses wiped the usual smell of Boston away.
"Everybody can agree it's nice." Another visitor told WBZ's Karyn Regal.
The garden is open to the public and free of charge, so why not stop and smell the roses.
