“Must See in Fort Collins”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

It is a quiet spot- not sure if kids will find it entertaining- but there is a lot of grass and outdoor space to run in ..
Very pretty display of colorful plants-flowers that you can actually grow at home!
Street parking is pretty good unless you go on a busy day-
Nice gazebo to sit and enjoy a coffee- when college is in session it may be harder to park near the gardens not sure-

“Stop By Every Season”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place to stop by on the way to Old Town with friends or family visiting...fun to look around and learn the names of different flowers...if only I could get them to grow in my yard! :)

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Have been visiting the flower garden annually for six years. Beautiful, colorful, peaceful garden. Great place for all ages, children through elderly. Children can run and play on the greens. Paths are easily walked and I have even seen wheelchairs being pushed along. Parking is sometime difficult to find, especially if the college is in session.

“Great for gardeners”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is the place for Colorado gardeners. Get a view of what is best for growing here in Northern Colorado. These are CSU test gardens to find cultivars that work well in this area and give you the most bang for your buck. i always take a notebook with me and take down the names of the plants i like. The following season, most of the nursery gardens will be selling these plants. Great way to have a fool-proof garden.

“Flowers beautiful - parking a nightmare”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

These flower gardens are beautiful and a great place to stroll for an hour or so in Fort Collins. However, there is very limited parking in the area, so be prepared. It is worth it though if you can find a place. Or park in one of the lots downtown and take the bus over to the gardens. Transfort (the bus system) is good and inexpensive and a great way to get around in old town since parking is a problem everywhere in the area.
