City of Saginaw MI -
Lucille E. Andersen Memorial Rose Garden

The Lucille E. Andersen Memorial Rose Garden was moved to its new location in 1993 as a living memorial. A circular fountain with sculpture by Marshall Fredericks is at the center of the garden and is surrounded by over 200 vividly colored rose bushes. Classic column pergolas adorn the walkway throughout the garden with trellises covered in wisteria. The garden is planted with flowers of different colors and includes annuals, perennials and bulbs in addition to roses. The garden is surrounded with spring blooming crabapple trees and decorative fencing.

The rose garden offers a colorful respite from the hustle of the outside world. Fragrant blooms of almost every color grace the garden during its prime blooming season, and provide a colorful and romantic setting for weddings and other outdoor events. Free jazz concerts are presented in the garden on Wednesday evenings in July and a festive art and garden fair is held in June.

Visitors to the rose garden will enjoy the formal look and feel of the space as they stroll brick pathways that lead to the fountain and sculpture.

Garden Hours:

Flying Wild Geese

This 4 foot tall bronze sculpture located in the fountain shows two geese in flight. The sculpture was presented to the City of Saginaw in 1993 by Frank N. Andersen who purchased the bronze from American artist Marshall Fredericks (1908-1998). Both Mr. Fredericks and Mr. Andersen were on hand for the dedication on April 7, 1993.
