CHICO, Calif. - The CARD Center on Chico Creek was the location for the 2019 Mother's Day Tea in the Rose Garden on Sunday.

The Chico Area Recreation District (CARD) hosted the tea in the very special rose garden that is located behind the center at 545 Vallombrosa Ave.  It is called the Creekside Rose Garden, and it has a quite colorful history.

“We still pinch ourselves when we look at our beautiful backyard, and it’s been over two years,” said Ann Willmann, CARD general manager. “We want to create more opportunities for people to visit this secluded gem, and Mother’s Day is a perfect occasion for families to admire the flowers and honor their loved ones.”

Guests on Mother's Day celebrating while strolling among vibrant flowers, sipping tea and lemonade, and noshing on tea sandwhiches and other catered treats.

The Creekside Rose Garden opened in May 2016 after years of effort led by local philanthropist Marilyn Warrens. Warrens had long envisioned a Chico rose garden but could not secure a suitable location until she approached CARD in 2013. Warrens helped fund the project, which is home to more than 260 rose plants and other native plant species.
