McGill Rose Garden
- Open Now
The McGill Rose Garden is a non-profit organization that hosts a community area for outside organizations to hold classes and a place for local artists to portal structural art pieces. A great setting for weddings and celebrations.
A very good use of a smaller space. I like the sculptures. Something called Rose's wine garden is getting ready to open. Social distancing and Mask wearing is being practiced. A beautiful serene place
A garden in the city! Still very early in the spring so not much was in bloom. There seemed to be planting in the works. The garden was still a beautiful, serene stop after the hectic city. There were a variety of roses, but also other kinds of flowers and beautiful trees. A great place to sit and take a break in nature.
What a magical rose garden. The old iron gate sign out front is very charming and almost eerie. I love it. You can enter via the smaller unassuming gate door or through the wine shop. The wine shop has great quality wines and a cozy environment. Fun fact, this garden opened on Mothers Day in 1962 after Helen McGill planted over 500 rose bushes to add color to the industrial streets of Charlotte. I feel like it still represents this today. It adds nature and color amongst all the apartment buildings and breweries. Its now a non profit and free to enter. This is one of my top favorite places in Charlotte!
Really enjoy this place. Beautiful outdoor setting. We had some engagement photos done here last year and the staff was really accommodating and it was well cared for. I know covid has affected the number of volunteers for 2020, thus it won't be in the same pristine condition, but I would consider checking it out regardless. They also have the nice addition of selling wine inside (by both bottle and glass). They can use all the support possible right now!
Closed because of the pandemic when we visited in April but we could look through the fence and see the beautiful flowers. Appears very nice from the outside but I'm looking forward to going back to Charlotte one day and perhaps visiting.
