CORVALLIS, Ore. -- June is the perfect time to stop by Avery Park in Corvallis, with many of the roses in its famous garden in full bloom.
The City just launched a new, interactive map to act as your guide and you can access it on your phone. Each rose bush is represented by an individual flower icon, which displays information about the particular rose at that location (including its variety, type, and color).
The rose garden was originally created in 1955 and has than 250 distinct varieties.
The rose map was a collaborative project between the City’s Information Technology Department and the Parks and Recreation Department.
The garden begins blooming in May and typically reaches peak bloom in June, with some varieties blooming into October.
