Slated to become bigger in 2016, can't wait. Until than lots of plants that work well in our Cheyenne difficult to grow in area. Worth the time to look around and enjoy.

Lovely spot to visit in the summer. The grounds are very well kept, and the little lake adds a nice touch. Nice way to spend an hour or so strolling around.

Nice small botanical gardens and greenhouse in Cheyenne near the Cheyenne Frontier Days Arena. No admission charge and easy parking. Be sure to walk up to see Old Sadie, the historic locomotive, and the one-of-a-kind "found objects" fence around it.

I'm quite glad we stopped for a visit. This is a city gem that local residents should be proud of. The green house has solar panels. Nice

Our initial reason for visiting the gardens was to see the Steam Engine 1242, otherwise known as Ol' Sadie. Union Pacific donated it to the city where it eventually found a home at the Botanic Gardens. The engine is surrounded by a unique fence constructed by the last engineer to drive Ol' Sadie. There's an interesting story about how and... More

There is a greenhouse for tropicals. Outside, there are various themed gardens including xeric, rock, rose, community vegetable gardens and a clever boardwalk over a marsh area. I was told by a worker that Cheyenne is a USDA zone 4 - which really limits the variety of plants that can be grown outside. Another worker said that voters had recently... More

Went with a group so couldn't pick date. Bit too early for many flowers but still beautiful...Very well groomed. Peaceful, Would say a little later visit advised.

This is another free activity to do. Well worth it even though its small. There is a nice bridge with a waterfall, some sculptures around the property and a nice display of regional plants and flowers.
