The Kansas City Rose Society serves as the steward of the Laura Conyers Smith Municipal Rose Garden in Jacob L. Loose Memorial Park, Kansas City, Missouri. The rose garden is the realization of a dream that began in 1931, when a group of citizens under the leadership of Laura Conyers Smith established the Kansas City Rose Society. The first garden contained 120 rose plants. Today, there are about 3,000 roses of nearly 150 varieties in the 1.5 acre garden.
The Kansas City Rose Society presents "The Evolution of a World Class Garden". Discover the rich history of Kansas City's loveliest historic landmark and how the Kansas City Rose Society, along with KC Parks, continues to perpetuate its beauty and allows it to thrive for all of the Kansas City Community to celebrate and enjoy! 3:00 pm September 20, 2014 at the Loose Park Garden Faire, 5200 Pennsylvania KCMO. ► View & Download Schedule (PDF)
