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. Today, there are about 3,000 roses of nearly 150 varieties in the 1.5 acre garden.
The Kansas City Rose Society is thrilled to announce that on July 4, 2018 at the World Federation of Roses Societies (WFRS) Triennial Conference in Copenhagen Denmark, the Laura Conyers Smith Municipal Rose Garden was one of several gardens to receive the WFRS Award of Garden Excellence.
