“The Tyler Rose Garden – the largest municipal rose garden in the United States, is a wonderful facility,” the document reads. “The master plan for the garden is intended to make the space even better. With the physical modifications proposed, and the programming outlined, many more can enjoy the splendor of the gardens.”

The master plan has nine phases.

Phase 1 of the master plan includes patios at the Queen’s Court and new walkways with ADA accessible routes, according to MHS Planning & Design documents.
