During the 1920s, Malcolm W. Gross, then Mayor of Allentown, dreamed of building a park in the middle of the city where citizens could stroll among dozens of varieties of roses.This resulted in the planning of the Rose Garden, completed 1931, and re-dedicated in June 1947, as the Malcolm W. Gross Rose Garden with a bust of the mayor by the artist, William Swallow.
