Almost didn't go because of a walk before the entry. It really was lovely and worth a visit. Beautifully taken care of and will definitely return. How nice to have something of such quality, free of charge!

This nicely maintained garden is along the Yampa River Trail. It can be seen in about 45-60 minutes. They offer educational opportunities every Wednesday. The day we were there - Thursday - there was live music on the green. Volunteers help keep this garden free to the public as well and keeping it beautiful for all to enjoy.

Nice, quiet (unless trains are going by) well kept park with many beautiful plants. Location is easily accessible. Free activity that is well worth the visit

This garden was beautiful and free. I was alone the whole time I walked through and it was great. I took great pictures and enjoyed my vacation time there.

Tucked a bit out of the way, but worth the effort. Very well maintained and designed, lots of local love and effort. Compact, but better than some botanical gardens in big cities, don't miss this when in Steamboat Springs.
