The garden is small, but has many native plants! I live in CO and didn’t realize that so many varieties would grow here. The walkway around the plants is part of the serenity of this garden!

We were doing the "pika tour" and geocaching -- both of which brought us to this little flower garden. Nice little stroll and some local history as well. Worth the short visit.

A tiny, roadside garden on the outskirts of Estes Park. It was closed when we were there, but I would imagine it would warrant a short stop. Being right next to the main highway into Rocky Mtn Ntl Park and the noise from passing traffic...More

I believe this attraction is still closed due to the flood of 2013 ~ at least that is what the sign on the gate indicates ~ you can still see some of the garden from the sidewalk

This little garden on the west end of town is a quiet oasis where you can wander, enjoy the plants and sit on a bench and recover from the tourist town. Open from dawn to dusk and free.

Based upon the 3 reviews, we purposefully sought out the garden. Turns out it is actually directly across the street from Glass Works, just a bit north of town. You can park at Glass Works and just cross the street. Even though the garden is...More

This little garden and it's flowers and sculpture can be part of your walk from the Big Horn restaurant to downtown Estes. You'll want to take pictures. It's a lovely and fitting memorial to an apparently good person.

This is a small but lush garden of local flowers and plants, done in memory of Mrs. Walsh, the founder's grandmother, I believe. Although we passed it the first time, we were glad we went back. No admission fee, a very peaceful place and names...More

There are no picnic tables in this area. There is however, a park right across the street and another right downtown Estes that has picnic tables. As far as Rocky Mountain, there are many areas with picnic tables. Enjoy!!
