A must see when in SLC. Gardens are immaculate and such a fantastic variety of plants and flowers. Would love to come back in the summer months to see more but certainly a beautiful Sping display of flowers. So enjoyed walking the gardens

I visited here after the Natural History Museum, both great places. It was so beautiful. Not the easiest place to get to if you don't have a car, but it was worth the walk.

This is a must see when in Salt Lake City. Nestled in the foothills above the University of Utah campus it provides stunning vistas, trails, and beautiful gardens. The gift shop has a wonderful assortment of items for purchase.

Hello - I agree with others who have answered. A few hours would give you ample time to see the garden. The garden is designed with lovely curved pathways that allow people to either meander slowly, take a tram tour, or pick... More

I went in the vendor gate so the line wasnt as long, but I saw people at the other gate about an hour before it opened. There isnt a bad spot in the house, though.
