Mable Ringling’s Rose Garden is one of the loveliest, most fragrant spots on the Ringling estate and one of its very first works of art.

Completed in 1913, the 27,225 square foot Rose Garden is Italian inspired, with its circular design patterned after a wagon wheel. The pathways lined with garden sculptures of courting couples in pastoral scenes.

The rose garden has approximately 450 rose plants, some of which are of the same variety planted by Mrs. Ringling herself.
