Wonderful setting in a huge park with long walking/biking trails, a lake, playground equipment, pet friendly, and picnic facilities.

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.

This is a great place to stop and smell the roses. The outer gardens, paths and pond are very well groomed. Very scenic and relaxing. Inside is nice too...small but with a multimillion dollar expansion underway, it will be a real draw.

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.
