This was a great find. Beautiful even on a cool drizzly Saturday in late September. There is ample parking, since the garden is adjacent to a youth soccer field. It is a slight walk from the parking lot to the garden, but over a level...More

Learn about some of the native vegetation. Take a book and read in a restful spot! Close to the bike trail and a nice spot to take a break!

I've been to few garden around the world, most in larger cities. This one surprised me a bit, mostly since Steamboat Springs is a high mountain town. There were many great displays of what's possible at this elevation.

A quiet restbit filled with botanical treats. It is a good place for a stroll before sunday brunch or after lunch. Just minutes away from town, a level and flat walk for young and old.

We spent about 2h with a 4 & 7 year old. Lots of interesting things to see and investigate. Adults only would plan for an hour.
