The gardens of the Historic City Cemetery will be in full bloom during our annual Open Garden. The fragrance of the old roses of the award-winning Historic Rose Garden will fill the air as 500 roses clamber up trees, cover archways and bloom on big shrubs in this unique 19th century setting. Perennial and native plant gardens will also be featured. The day begins with a sale of rare heritage rose plants and continues with free tours of the gardens and cemetery, a Silent Auction, and sales of rose merchandise.
The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. Tours are free; however, donations and proceeds will benefit cemetery preservation projects.
