Attractive gardens near to the river and not far from town. Has a butterfly house and a reasonable range of plants and habitats. Ponds where you can feed fish. There is an admission fee which detracts from it being somewhere you'd just pop in, but we enjoyed our hour there.

Of course, we love gardens and Grand Junction has one called the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens. We looked at it online and it didn't look like much but....we went anyway. Who doesn't love flowers? In all, they had (1) a butterfly garden, (2) inside "hot" room, (3) outside rock garden, (4) Iris courtyard, (5) an entire outdoor section devoted to... More

it's a good thing, which a few paid staff and many dedicated volunteers who share a love of gardening have come together to run this unique (for our area) establishment. quite often there are butterflies (year round) in the indoor semi-tropical garden (don't touch!) -- and an increasing array of outdoor gardens and other facilities as well. I think they... More

Great place to go just for a little get away from traveling. We enjoyed just seeing all of the different plants and taking our time.

A delight garden to refresh and take a colorful walk along Western Colorado's offerings of color and variety of plants and vines. Many native plants and always some color to brighten the day. Close to County Fair grounds and activities throughout the year.

Real cool, the trail with tropical and food-related plants inside the well developed greenhouse, nice layout along path outside, pond-side and cool local artifacts in the evolving display. Nice butterfly pavilion and friendly special needs docents really shows the compassion of the folks running this must see attraction.

My Experience was not perfect. It may not be the best place for a concert, if you are not looking for perfection in any sense. There is a nice walk and you can look at stuff at the Gardens........But a place to put on a concert it is ok....there was barely room for the 100 people. The sun was in... More

We attended a concert in the gardens and enjoyed the experience. There is a nice gift shop and the gardens make a nice concert venue. Easy parking and casual atmosphere.

The staff was most pleasurable. The two indoor spaces were kept up nicely and were a nice sight to see. The outdoor area needs lots of attention with half of the lights falling down, not many plants marked and weeds growth everywhere. I was a little disappointed after I had read the previous postings and actually had received a recommendation... More
