The CSU horticulture department plants massive amounts of flowers just across campus on College Ave in front of the old Ft Collins High School. The garden is a sea of color and absolutely beautiful. It makes a gorgeous backdrop for photos! And, it's free!

If you haven't been to visit the gardens, make plans while the season allows it. This is a peaceful place to wander and look at all the varieties of flowers- many you may not even be aware of. Relax and smell the roses.

Yes, it's wheelchair accessible. Some views, though, require getting around a foot path on the grounds. For more detail, I would contact their website thru Colorado State University.
