We've been here several times. It's another place that you can get in on the connect pass. Amazing views and gardens. Kids enjoy it too. Great little gift shop. Parking is ample on off days (Not Saturday , holiday or free days).

Nice mix of cultivated gardens and natural hiking trails. The main garden path is fully paved and accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. Very well maintained, and the Children's Garden is especially charming. The upper trails are through scrub oak and high desert environment. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys botanical gardens.

Allow 2 hours to leisurely walk the entire garden. Many places with benches to sit, catch your breath or read a book. Well kept by a volunteer group. Summer camps for lucky kids.

Spent a few hours there on a Sunday morning. Cost is $10 per person. Quite beautiful and informative. It is on the side of a hill so you'll be spending time walking up the hill. Most of the paths are paved so not a difficult walk. Not so much of a place for younger children. Well worth the time

This is where I proposed to my wife over twenty years ago. It was beautiful then and they keep making it more and more beautiful each year. A very special place for us.

Nice garden, very peaceful. It is nice to walk through there in a warm sunny day and to enjoy all the wonderful plant's colors and smells.

These gardens are a few miles out on the eastern side of Salt Lake City. They're quite small, but very pretty. The roses were beautiful in late June. They have an attractive patio/courtyard where you can have a picnic.
