The best times to see those are around early July, mid August and early September, and several best times come. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. They accept a donation. Garden House Plaza Welkamu (ガーデンプラザ「ウエル花夢」) that dishes and souvenirs can be enjoyed and a public restroom are built beside the parking lot.

Look of Rose Garden Chippubetsu
The rose garden has Rose Castle Flora (バラの城ふろーら), Karos Hill Lookout (カロスの丘展望台), Shukeiike Pond (修景池), Bell of Karos (カロスの鐘), Rose Shop Yume-Pokke (ローズショップ ゆめポッケ) and a gazebo. Visitors can look around along walks. The elevation of the Karos Hill Lookout is about 100 m, and the elevation of the rose garden is about 80 m, so the difference of elevation is about 20 m. The hill has steps of its difference of elevation, so you may wear comfortable shoes.
The Bell of Karos stands near the Shukeiike Pond, and if people throw a coin into the fountain in looking back after ringing the bell, it is said that their wishes come true. The wishes are classified depending on ringing times. For example, ringing 1 time classifies the success of love, and ringing 2 times classifies the luck with money. Open 100th Anniversary Tower (開基100年記念塔) beside Chippu You and Yu (ちっぷゆう＆ゆ) has a bell as well as the Bell of Karos, and I guess that all the bells in Chippubetsu that is the town where a bell sounds have same effects. By the way, the Karos means "Beautiful" in Greek language.
The Karos Hill Lookout is the highest place at the site. Water flows from here to the Shukeiike Pond, and benches are built on the top, and the visitors can view the rose garden. A view from a stone bridge across a small river is comfortable, too.
As for the Rose Castle Flora, there are a souvenir shop, a soft serve ice cream shop and restrooms on the 1st floor, and I forgot to eat the rose flavor soft serve ice cream, so I will try it next time. A rest place is on the 2nd floor, and the visitors can go out on balconies, and the rose garden can be seen from there.
