Great day out to wander and enjoy nature. I took a picnic and really planned a relaxing afternoon. The park did not disappoint!

They charge to see it for the upkeep, but it is worth visiting, also has a little gift shop, it is landscaped real well, every turn is different, there is also a rose garden, in the summer many hummingbirds in all kind of colors, there is a special children area, such a variety of flowers, they have golf cart tours...

Went here to see a concert for the third summer in a row. I love it every time. Bring a bottle of wine and a picnic and you're guaranteed a great time.

Red Butte Garden is a lovely garden, so very well thought through and planted. Stunning in the spring, summer and fall, haven't been in the winter yet.

Beautiful location, lovely opportunity to get some mountain air all the while looking at gardens. Especially nice in the fall.

Great place to spend an afternoon away from hustle and bustle of SLC. Many paths and different types of gardens to walk around. If into hiking there are trails nearby.

It is a very nicely laid out gardens, can easily be done in one day, and the children's garden was delightfully done. They had a Chihouli glass exhibit while we were there, which added so much to our visit.

The gardens are great but go see a show there, best venue in town! It's getting a bit pricey but well worth it. Variety of music second to none!

Since moving to Utah 8 years ago, this is one place that I seek for nature's beauty. Spring and fall never disappoint. Love the concert venue.
