Huntington Park Rose Garden

The Huntington Park Rose Garden came to be in 1970 after city officials decided that a city the size of Newport News ought to have a rose garden. The garden’s first plants were mainly hybrid tea and grandiflora roses, which were chosen because of their sturdiness and ability to adapt. The garden expanded in 1975 to include Williamsburg mayor Dr. Henry M. Stryker’s prized roses, a donation to the park after he died in 1974. Today the garden is a bright scene of nature’s flowerful gifts, which include 74 varieties of roses such as floribundas and climbers. Groups will enjoy an informational tour of the garden as they learn all about roses from the landscape services staff.
