We're not saying the average tourist should rush right out to the Garden Center and that your vacation won't be complete if you don't go, but there are a couple of compelling reasons to go, especially if you like flowers and historical homes. For starters, it's located in beautiful Woodward Park, known for its bountiful collection of azaleas that bloom each spring. Adjacent to the Garden Center is the Municipal Rose Garden, built as a WPA project in 1934 and 1935 and now showcasing 5,000 rose plants. The Center itself holds events and houses an extensive horticulture library, but even if you don't need to read up on ranunculi, you might enjoy checking out the Italianate-style villa that was once one of Tulsa's most opulent homes. The park, gardens and villa are frequently used as backdrops for portraits; bring along a camera for your own flowery photo op.
