I suppose I could have done more research, but in my quest to fill up an afternoon before a red-eye out of SLC I decided to trek out here, only to find hardly anything growing, the bathrooms closed (which led to me making an emergency run to Starbucks down the street), and no-one really around (though the adjacent bike path was busy) That said, in season it's probably pretty nice.

Since I'm an avid gardener and visit botanical gardens whenever I can, I had been looking forward to visiting the Ogden Botanical Gardens for some time. Business in Ogden finally gave me a chance. But the visit was disappointing. This garden is clearly a student-project kind of place: the various garden areas are each small and minimal, and some are barely worthy of their designation. The Japanese garden, for instance, has a red and black wooden trellis, rickety bridge, and gate of sorts--all amateurishly constructed of worn, painted 2x4s and plywood--and those are the only signs that the garden is Japanese. It has no water features, no traditional Japanese garden elements except a concrete lantern, and no real Japanese plantings. And it is smaller than an average condominium back yard. The vegetable garden is a small enclosure with a few raised beds and your usual vegetables, all without signs, labels, or instructional materials of any kind. The cottage garden is just a short trail amid shade trees and perennials. Only the rose garden is worthy of the name, but just a few of the roses were labeled. The entrance has some pretty perennials (though nothing out of the ordinary) and there are some nice pavilion and lawn areas for picnicking and relaxing, and it's pleasant enough for wandering around in, so I would say it is a nice park. And it's free. But it isn't a real botanical garden, by any stretch of the imagination.

This is a great place for beautiful gardens near the mouth of Ogden Canyon. Take pictures of the gardens or even pose for family pictures. Sometimes there are musical events, wedding receptions, or other events here. The Ogden River Parkway runs passed the gardens and is great for walking, running, and cycling. Parking is free.

My wife and I went to the garden this afternoon, and the opening display at the parking lot was extremely colorful, with a wide variety of flowering plants. We walked through the botanical garden, and the garden would be served by having labels on the plants. That would be my only suggestion for improvement. And, by the way, the garden is free of charge to enter.

Flowers, flowers, flowers a lot of amazing flowers. The garden is a nice peaceful place for a picnic or a walk. It is also a great place for photo-shooting.
