We actually went here to kill some time but the gardens were very well done and covered a vast area. The bonus for the time-frame we attended was the Lego art displays spread throughout the gardens. Very impressed with the prolific labels of most all...More
Red Butte garden is a lovely place to visit and walk through. At different times of the year you will see a brilliant explosion of colors, and every type of flower and plant that grows in the Utah climate. You can also enjoy this experience...More
Had a chance to go there on a free day (labor day) as part of a trip to Utah. The gardens were well cared for with lots of color even in summer. Definitely worth a trip to this garden and great if you can catch...More
The gardens are set up in sections. There is a floral walkway, a fragrance garden, herb garden, medicinal garden, rose garden, and lots more. I was there 2 hours and didn't see 1/3 of the gardens. The tags identifying the plantings are clear and helpful....More
The Rose Garden was in full bloom and absolutely amazing. I also loved the new Water Conservation Garden which is a great resource to others wanting to modify their gardens to save on water. The Children's Garden was fabulous and if I lived nearby with...More
Even though we felt it was a little too expensive to enter the gardens they were very beautiful and well maintained. Some very interesting plants from all over the world and some very good planting ideas too! You also have one of the best views...More
Well I haddn't been there for a year, men, they did a lot of work on it, and expanded the gardens as well, with a beautiful overlook on the valley, made more children’s play area.
It is always a delight to see all the flowers...More

I love the garden in the spring when the wisteria is in bloom. June is also beautiful when the rose garden is breathtaking and fragrant. It can get very warm in July and August. I visit in the evening during those months.

Yes I could answer that. You could spend 4 to 6 hours if you wanted I beautiful. One issue is the weather. It gets hot up there during the late summer. I have videoed a few weddings and the temp in the sun was 102. Go in the... More
Yes I could answer that. You could spend 4 to 6 hours if you wanted I beautiful. One issue is the weather. It gets hot up there during the late summer. I have videoed a few weddings and the temp in the sun was 102. Go in the evening or morning. Maybe the day you go it will be nice.
You know this place is only a few miles from the zoo and the pioneer monument also so you have multiple things to do up there on the valley east bench.
Flying into SLC, planning to stay near airport and have two days to fill. Will we need to rent a car to get to the downtown area? We would like to do and see some (or all, if possible) of the following: tour Temple Square, the Beehive and Lion houses, State Capitol, and Convention Center; and visit the Gateway, Red Butte Garden, and This is the Place Monument. If we don't rent a car, how we will get to the downtown area? Or would it be better to the do the rounds with Big Bus Utah rather...More

Planned to stay near the airport to catch an early flight out. Thought we could get the light rail from the airport into the downtown area, but didn't think we'd want to try to chance getting back into the airport for an early morning flight. (Been there, done that in another city and it didn't work so well!) Planning to stay in one of the Marriott properties near airport - either the Springhill Suites or the Residence Inn (due to using reward pts). It would be great if we could catch...More

Red Butte Garden, mid-October (3 Replies)
Wondering how vibrant Red Butte Garden is in mid-October. I have read reviews posted under Things To Do. Several have said early Spring is too early ... but what about mid October? I have been to several gardens in north America at prime time, and I want to be discerning. Not interested in paying/going if a big chunk of the plants will be dormant.

If there is anything blooming in mid-October it would be in the greenhouses. I haven't visited then, but not sure what you expect from the gardens. It is a little bit different from other gardens I have visited and is not necessarily flower oriented. Fall can be a great time to wander the paths and enjoy the fall colors. But if you are expecting grand floral displays then you will be disappointed.

We’re a 40 year old couple celebrating our anniversary in Salt Lake City (first visit) from July 11 to 18. We tend to avoid crowds and prefer a somewhat relaxing pace. For activities, we like hiking, rafting, history, engineering feats, casual culture (for example: outdoor concert rather than getting dressed up). A good hike for us would be a couple of miles (easy to medium), without boulder scrambling or Boy Scout troops. Obviously I understand that it’s hard to predict the activity of large...More

Interesting! You're the 3rd person to recommend Park City to me. Guess I'll have to check it out.
