The Rose Garden at the Exposition Park in Los Angeles is a historic 7-acre sunken garden. It has been called “one of the city’s best-kept secrets.” It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. (Source)
The Exposition Park is also the home of the Los Angleles Memorial Coliseum near USC, the LA Natural History Museum, California Science Center, the CA African American Museum and the Sports Arena.
When we visited the Park in July, there was an exhibit of the Cool Globles, to encourage recycling, see related post below.
This is the famous Rose Garden with the LA Natural History Museum (under reconstruction) in the background. I did not do justice with the photograph, because it was too hot that day, but I managed to take a few shots of the roses, though the scent of the flowers was all over.
Besides the roses, there are a variety of them in bloom: the agapanthus, and I think the yellow flower is galdiolus, but not sure. The hydrangeas, too, were in bloom, the benefits we get in the West for the hot summer weather.
The Rose Garden has always been a good venue for photo shoots and weddings. This day there was a Quincenera pictorial.
This is the fighting dinosaurs sculpture.

These are just a few highlights of the big Park. I hope to come back again and explore more.
