Every time I come here I'm pleasantly surprised at the diversity of plants and the good labels and explanations. Definitely worth a visit if you want to know about Colorado plants.

I wasn't sure how visiting in October would be, but it was really a beautiful place. Staff is so friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming! Great signs to explain things. Hands-on places for the kids.

Lovely community garden - plenty of space for little ones to run around and play with water. Some nice seating in the shade - they are currently working on a new area.
