The Raleigh Rose Garden

The Raleigh Rose Garden was created in the bowl of the old dog race track so it is below grade with the slopes of the land of the former seats were located. It was converted back in the 50s so many of the trees which surround it are large. It is maintained by The Raleigh Rose Society and is next to The Raleigh Little Theater.
