This charming garden is a delight! The garden consists of a series of smaller garden spaces, each with its own theme. A particular favorite was the butterfly garden, but there is something for everyone - including the children.

We were told most locals don't know about this place and are typically introduced to it by out of town visitors. Fun garden sections. Great for homeschoolers! If there's a gardener there, they're happy to answer your questions. We went in March and July, so different things were blooming and growing. They even have a handicapped accessible garden with examples... More

Beautiful and up kept. There are several picnic areas (covered and uncovered as well). The plants are all labeled and there is a lot of information on composting. We love to stroll through and let the kids explore. It's all fenced in which is nice too. This really is a gem, and is open from dawn to dusk. It is... More

At least it used to be free and now that Douglas County Parks charge an entrance fee I'm not sure. This is detached from River Forks Park where there is definitely a fee now. So hopefully it is still free. It has lots of cool gardening displays put together by local "Master Gardeners". There is also a small pavilion where... More

Nice respite from I5 driving. There are picnic areas, lots of lovely flowers and plants. Good for gardening ideas. Bathrooms and playgrounds are nearby at River Forks Park.

Garden is maintained by the Douglas County Master Gardeners and it shows! Many themed gardens such as Japanese, Dahlias, Rose, Herb, Xeriscape, Fruit Tree, Childrens' garden and more. There is always something of interest to see in any season but try to visit during the spring/summer for maximum flower power. You can see it all in an hour or so,... More

This garden is located approximately 5 miles outside city limits. The garden is lovingly maintained and includes several benches and garden rooms to sit and relax. The children's garden is an inspiration with a secret sitting area tucked under the canopy of a flowering cherry. It's free therapy!
