The Friends of East Sacramento funded the new monument entry sign at the Frederick N. Evans Memorial Rose Garden in McKinley Park.
The sign is the first phase of the rehabilitation to be completed in the next several months. Further work is expected to begin in September and will include replacement of the failing irrigation system, accessible walkways and replacement of diseased rose bushes. The rehabilitation should be completed in early 2012.
This project is a partnership between the City of Sacramento, the Sacramento Rose Society and community groups such as Friends of East Sacramento.
The rose garden was designed and developed in 1928 by Frederick Evans, a well-known landscape architect and Sacramento’s first Park Superintendent. In 1946, the City Council named the garden the “Frederick N. Evans Memorial Rose Garden.”
