It was a nice place to stroll around and relax. I guess there was a pretty devastating hail storm that came through a week or so before we were there, but I couldn't tell. I thought it was the heat that was damaging the botany. Nice none the less.

Ill admit Im a flower and garden nerd. One of the main things i expected to do in cheyenne was visit this place. Sadly they were hit with a very damaging hail storm a few weeks prior. Even with that damage, there were a lot of weeds, very few native plants, and overall not innovative or well designed. They need... More

I was too early for any of the outdoor plants, but the greenhouse was filled with plants in bloom so I had a nice reprieve from winter. I am amazed that this botanic garden is staffed by volunteers, kudos to all of them.

The Botanical Gardens are peaceful and beautiful. Because of the adjacent Lions Park and Sloan Lake, it's a great place to bring your kids...and dogs. Cheyenne is an incredibly dog friendly city.

We visit yearly during Cheyenne Frontier Days. It is well kept and has such beautiful smells. It was damaged by hail and the community got together and helped clean it up.

The Cheyenne Botanic Garden is an amazing place. Especially in Cheyenne, there isn't another area like this in the State of Wyoming. The Botanic Gardens is well done, and Shane is a really good director of the facility. I have never seen this place not packed and that is a good thing. The Children's Village is an awesome escape for... More

Good information on the local flora and fauna. Can fish at the adjacent lake. Stone's throw from the Cheyenne Frontier Days arena and property.

...and that's all it is. Very pleasant, but I've been in botanic gardens that would make this look shabby. Work around for 15 or 20 minutes. Rest, Relax, That's about all. A little past the gardens in the park is another steam locomotive that is worth stopping to see. It's in better shape than the Big Boy in Holliday Park.... More

A colourful experience with all sorts of environments represented, story telling, making paper bugs, classes on growing things, a wetlands area to go paddling in, and many other things. It is part of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, which is also well worth a visit if you are interested in plants. and there's an old prairie locomotive preserved on site too.
