The Rose Garden neighborhood in San Jose, California, is a transformed residential area, with significant commercial presence along major streets. The popular Santa Clara area is located west of Sunol-Midtown, north of Burbank, northeast of Winchester, and east of the Cory neighborhood.  It is located in the southeast of the City of Santa Clara. The neighborhood gets its name from the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden, a 5 acre park with thousands of rose bushes.

In 1927 The Rose Garden neighborhood were primarily pear and prune orchards. The area was also home to farm houses and a few mansions.

The City purchased an 11 acre prune garden and converted part of it into the Municipal Rose Garden. In 1937, John Crummey, the chairman of FMC, subdivided his 25 acre pear orchard into residential lots. This initial development established the core of the neighborhood.

 

The Rose Garden neighborhood has preserved its residential housing. The original architecture of the 1920s and 1930s borrowed bits from the English Cotswold Cottage, Norman and Tudor designs.


Many of the original bungalows have been extensively remodeled or torn down and replaced with newer architectural styles. Almost all of the homes feature detached garages in the back of the property. This allows the front yards to feature large green spaces with a small long driveway to the back for the garage. The neighborhood is popular with walkers and joggers as the sidewalks are tree lined and bordered with large front yards.
