Lovely place to forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Beautifully kept. Great place to marvel at the flowers. Good place to start and end a lunch time run through the surrounding suburbs.

Absolutely magical! I'm a sucker for roses and to be in a massive garden full of them was like going to a candy store. It is relatively well kept and I really like how there are quite a few benches where you can just sit and relax or admire the beauty that lay before you. Durbanville Rose Garden is definitely a place to escape from reality while still being in it. Loved visiting it and I'm definitely going back.

What a wonderful rose park to explore and relax, hidden in Durbanville. It's not too difficult to find and there's a helpful guide at the entrance to help you understand the different types of roses. The garden is well-maintained and it's a lovely spot for people to take wedding pictures (please don't photo-bomb them). Neat and clean toilets are available on site and there's parking inside if you prefer. It does get very hot here in summer and a couple of extra shaded benches would be great.

Knowing that this is a well known place for wedding pics, there is just not enough parking space.

Always peaceful place. The smell and feel of being in heaven on earth. Always clean, roses so beautifully. Free entrance and free parking. Love the place.. I'll always recommend it anytime
