CCRS Garden Director: Bob Woelffer :

Surrounding the 1887 Historic Magee house is a qualitative garden of about 225 rose bushes representing 15 families of the rose. One garden is modern roses and the other garden contains Old Garden roses and shrubs. A new miniature rose garden was planted in 2003. This magical garden is maintained by the members of the California Coastal Rose Society and established by Ivy Bodin of Vista with love and care for many years.
