This unique garden area is easy to get to, beautiful to walk through and provides a way for the public to see research at work. The gardens are always a treat to view. Each year there are different varieties of flowers, and the way they present them in the garden is a rainbow of fun. There are definitely better times... More

This is one of the most spectacular and very colorful displays of flowers we have ever seen. It is a breathtaking view as you realize how beautiful it is and the ideas and thoughts that go into it to. A must see for any visitors to Fort Collins and you realize what the students and staff of CSU accomplish.

If you love flowers this is the place to go. As we were driving a long the road, the flowers of so many colors just jump out of you. So glad that we stopped.

It is part of the CSU trial horticulture program. What a treat to see such a variety of plants in all colors, types and sizes. It has easy access just off College avenue with shaded areas, benches,etc. I will never miss it when I am in Ft. Collin.

Street parking is easy to find. The varieties of flowers planted in the ground are pretty mainstream but make a beautiful view from a distance. The potted section had more unique varieties of flowers and plants. Check out both. Area is pretty small so a quick walk through is possible.

Lots of beautiful colorful flowers to view...many varities that are very well-marked...they even tell you how much water they give the various varieties each week. A peaceful place for a walk or to sit and reflect as there are benches and a gazebo.

An excellent destination for a bike ride. The Trial Garden has beautiful flowers in many different varieties. You can wander through the garden and see the different colors and sniff the odoriferous varieties. It's a treat for the senses. We'll go here again!
