Welcome to The Rose Garden at MCC

Welcome to the Desert Southwest's largest rose garden, where roses bloom in the desert. Host to nearly 9000 rose bushes located in Mesa, AZ.

The Rose Garden at Mesa Community College is not only a Mesa landmark but a centerpiece for community, education, and innovative economic initiatives in the East Valley. Students, kindergarten through high school and community college through university, use the Rose Garden as botanical laboratories and study areas.

The Rose Garden at MCC is an excellent example of the unique and outstanding results that can be achieved through one of the Mesa Community College's community partnerships. The partnership between the Mesa-East Valley Rose Society and Mesa Community College has resulted in the largest public rose garden in the desert southwest and is the only significant public rose garden begun since 1974. The garden provides a beautiful setting for students and the public to enjoy our nation's national flower - the Rose.
