    we can tour the rose garden on our own if we come earlier in the day on friday, right?

      Hi Judy!

      You can absolutely tour the Rose Garden on your own at any time, outside of when an event is scheduled (and even then it’s actually closed off for people who might want to wander). It’s open from dawn until desk.

      Thank you!
