“Peaceful, if you can ignore the highway traffic”

Sawtooth Botanical Garden
Ranked #4 of 26 things to do in Ketchum
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 August 2014

The Sawtooth Botanical Garden is a work in progress (like all gardens of this sort). It's missing lots of markers for the different plants and the design is still rather haphazard, but we really did enjoy our visit. As the Garden progresses, it will become a beautiful place of contemplation. If only they could dampen the highway, which is just yards away.

We're looking forward to returning soon and seeing the progress they've made.

I really liked the Tibetan prayer wheel under the pagoda is really cool. Not a lot to see here but if its on your way I would stop by.
Be sure to get exact directions because there was no sign for the gardens off the main highway.

The Sun Valley/Ketchum bike path meanders through Ketchum and Sun Valley. It's beautifully maintained and has stunning views, creeks, flowers and even horses along the way. The botanical garden is a lovely oasis of flowers and quiet adjacent to the bike path.

Sun Valley is a treasure for you who want to breathe fresh air, enjoy the outdoors, look at stars against a dark sky and get away from traffic and noise. This is a friendly, quiet yet sophisticated town.

This botanical garden specializes in education, but their grounds are instructive, also. I am not sure of the status of the community garden. But a prayer wheel has been put in the middle of a very lovely spot, blessed by the Dalai Lama personally, and it takes one to another place. Certainly worth a visit.

Small garden with awesome gazebo and prayer wheel blessed by the Dali Lama. Nice place for a take a moment and meditate before moving on. The garden also hosts many events. Keep driving north to get into some very unspoiled roadless wilderness.
