All ages will love the Garden of Lights this year. Carrots, purple cone flowers, butterflies, tomatoes on the vine, lights that change colors while you watch and so much more await your visit. All they ask is that you make a $2 donation voluntarily. Don't miss it. We walked through it twice on 12/18 and may go again. Our drive... More

Though I am a local resident, I had not visited this attraction before December 2014, when a friend invited me to see the lights. I was pleasantly surprised at the care taken with this light display and the precision of details. It was beautiful & unlike ant light display I had seen before. The staff & volunteers were very helpful... More

from plant sales, classes, to the garden of lights, the Spring Creek Gardens are a treat for plant lovers and the little ones. They also offer some unique camps and classes for kiddos.

Nice views of the foothills, even though close to downtown and campus. Informative place to research plants and trees. Spring Creek path is very close, but no dogs are allowed in the gardens.

I truly loved this park. All decked out for autumn with scarecrows and fall decorations. We had no little ones along, but we thought the children's section was fun & educational. We visited on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and were surprised there was no crowd. There is a pretty gazebo with a plant covered roof, gorgeous outdoor kitchen, fish pond,... More

Advertised as a botanical garden, there are a few plantings and a nursery. Plants are for purchase, but it really wasn't worth the time.

Oh what a fun place to stop & stretch your legs. Like others are saying the children's area is not to be missed. Wish I had the grandkids with us.

The gardens were beautiful. The children's garden was amazing. I can't believe the effort they put into it. I would take my nieces there in a heartbeat. The vegetable gardens were also very interesting. The gardens were right across from the conference I attended and I went there everyday at noon to eat my lunch.

Lovely to walk around during any season but also with some very informative workshops for gardeners done by staff. I've also appreciated buying starter plants in the spring and day lilies during their special annual day lily sale. I am a better gardener because of Gardens on Spring Creek.
