This is a really small garden, but the variety of flowers, the colors, and the placement of them were very beautiful. There is a prayer wheel, a small flowing water, and beautiful walkways. There is no real entrance fee but there is a donation request.

We enjoyed the surrounding fall color and mountain views as well as the content of the garden. There is a very lovely Tibetan pavilion and sculptures and water features. It is certainly worth a stop as you head to or from Ketchum.
