Visit the Rose Garden at Chico State
August 4, 2022
Lucky CSU students and Chico locals have been able to stroll through a very special garden since 1957. The George Peterson Rose Garden is a scented heaven of hundreds of different varieties of roses. This colorful ode to floral beauty is thanks to the efforts of George Peterson, a horticulturist, and Richard Pessner, a former groundskeeper at CSU who executed Peterson’s vision. With bloom cycles in the spring through the fall, it’s worth wandering down to this unique garden to view the roses at their best.
