The spectacular Gardens of the American Rose Center are located on a 118-acre wooded tract near Shreveport, Louisiana. The gardens are home to the national headquarters of the American Rose Society. We are the nation's largest park dedicated to roses. The gardens were dedicated in 1974, when the American Rose Society headquarters moved to Shreveport, Louisiana from Columbus, Ohio. Today, the American Rose Center features more than 65 individual rose gardens and 20,000 rosebushes, with a variety of companion plants, sculptures and fountains, including the beautiful Dudley Watkins Reflection Pool.

Booking a Wedding.
I emailed the wedding planner at the American Rose Center, and was sent a response email within 1 hour. The wedding planner answered all of my questions thoroughly in her responsive emails, and then found a date and time for my mother and I to come meet with her. After our meeting with the wedding planner, my mother and I knew this was the perfect place to book my wedding. Working 24 hours we had the wedding and reception booked, and we both felt a since of relief about the wedding! I am excited beyond words to have my wedding at this location. I know everything will be beautiful.

I called the American Rose Center because I think it is beautiful what I didn't expect was how wonderful and helpful they are at the Rose Center, super accommodating and helpful advice. Thank you ARC, you were a big part of my wedding being so beautiful and perfect!

We used the gardens chapel for the ceremony and a small party room for the reception. It was very pretty and everything turned out well. Biggest complaint was flexibility. Had to call an employee everytime we wanted to go over because there wasn't anyone there most of the time. Also, the day of the wedding they had a construction site that they had not warned us about in advance but it was not a problem other than it wasn't the prettiest. Over all a good experience.
