E.M. Mills Rose Garden at Thornden Park


The E.M. Mills Rose Garden is beautiful any time of year. The Mills Garden includes more than 3,000 rose bushes and offers visitors many unique varieties. The Lawrence Johnston climbers and David Austin roses are spectacular when in bloom (usually in June). The Mills Rose Garden is one of the prime locations in Syracuse for outdoor events including summer wedding photos. The Mills Rose Garden was named Best Wedding Photo Spot in the "The Best of Syracuse" Syracuse New Times annual poll. Call the Syracuse Department of Parks and Rec to secure a permit and reserve the park at (315) 473-4330.
