This important heritage rose garden is only open on certain days by arrangement. The Brooks Rose Garden contains very rare Canadian- and USA-bred hardy roses that were used in breeding by Agriculture Canada's lines of Explorer and Parkland roses. In fact, some of the roses in the garden were thought to be extinct. Both named roses and unnamed seedlings used for breeding can be found here, bred by such pioneering hybridizers as Percy H. Wright, Dr. Frank L. Skinner, George Wallace, Walter Schowalter, Robert M. Erskine, Henry H. Marshall, Prof. N.E. Hansen, and Dr. Griffith J. Buck.
