Discover all 27 specialty landscapes – there is something for everyone and always something in bloom either inside the solar greenhouse or on the grounds.

If you haven’t experienced the Paul Smith Children’s Village, which is also part of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, then you are missing out. Bring the kids and see just how fun nature can be – while learning at the same time.

The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is currently undergoing major construction and renovation. As a result, the Garden’s main parking lot is now closed. However, the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens greenhouse and offices as well as the Paul Smith Children’s Village will remain open during their regular business hours.

To access the Paul Smith Children’s Village, visitors are asked to park in the Old Community House parking lot, which is east of the facility. From there follow the adjacent sidewalk to the main entrance.

To access the Botanic Gardens greenhouse and offices, visitors can come into Lions Park as if they are heading to the Kiwanis Community House but take the road that heads just south of the building adjacent to the Park Gazebo. From there you will find parking available either along Sloan’s Lake or adjacent to the Boy Scout Building.

A 6,800-square-foot solar heated and solar powered conservatory also features several outside gardens, each designed in a unique style.

While on an afternoon trip to Wyoming we happened along this little slice of paradise. It was not what I expected, it was much more. By winter it's a greenhouse that helps to feed those in need. The handicapable and others who perform community service tend the plants inside. The greenhouse is 100% solar powered and it's about 80 degrees... More

There were wide open spaces for the children to run and play. There was an easily accessible clean bathroom . There was also a children's museum next to it but was closed while we were... More

Lovely man made lake with paved paths and a variety of birds and other small animals to watch. Nice bathrooms with loops outside to hook dog leashes ( think hitching post! ). Plenty of benches. Gardens are small, but well designed. Each style feels like a secret place of solitude. Construction doesn't detract from the beauty. Miniature golf. Train engine... More

A small area in a big park by a lake. There's a small so so greenhouse building as a starting point. Start walking outside though are quite different. There's different gardens to visit, each simple yet unexpectedly delightful to walk through. There's even a family of hawk recently moved in. Very relaxing place to visit even in such a relaxing...

The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is situated in one of Cheyenne's largest parks and next to Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo Grounds. The gardens are a lovely place to spend an afternoon admiring the beautiful array of flowers.

We stopped here as a place to rest our legs and have a picnic lunch. Very nice picnic tables along the lake (and bathrooms too!). Then we walked thru the gardens and into the greenhouse. The building area was under construction, but still got to enjoy some beautiful plantings. I especially enjoyed their use of edibles w/ annuals to create... More

Somewhat disappointing. Very small, many plants are not labeled. Walkways are overgrown with plants, and damaged areas are not trimmed.

Love it there. It's Cheyenne's little escape from...Cheyenne. The city does a great job maintaining the place and even keeping the excessive numbers of geese away too. Just stay away from the park during Wyoming holiday week, otherwise known as Frontier Days.
