The Woodland Library Rose Club was founded in 1989 by a group of rose enthusiasts with a mission to help all rose lovers learn about growing roses. On May 18, 1991, the club dedicated a Memorial Rose Garden on the grounds of the Woodland Public Library. A year later, the Perimeter Wall Garden of roses was planted around the Library and dedicated on April 25, 1992.
In cooperation with the City of Woodland, the library rose gardens were extended to the north and west of the property. The John A. Saltsman garden was dedicated on September 26, 1998. The garden displays examples of species, heritage, and modern day roses. The roses were carefully planted according to how they are related to each other. Lovely metal arches were installed and old-fashioned climbing roses were planted to create a shady stroll. This area of the garden was dedicated as the Price Amerson Walkway. Currently the gardens boast 600 varieties of roses.
