From 1765 - 1877 the Rose Garden served as a cemetery for the lower town. Since 1913 the Rose Garden has been a public park resplendent with the rich beauty of flowers and featuring a pond. From 1956 - 62 the park was redesigned and rhododendrons and azaleas as well as an iris garden were introduced. A pavilion and reading garden provide an opportunity for relaxation. It is a great place to while away the time and offers a view of the rows of houses in the old town.
