We happened to hit it right for the blooms. It is a beautiful garden, well maintained. We didn't have any problem finding parking. It really was a joy to walk through and take many pictures. It was great stop in Ft Collins.

We weren't expecting to find such a spectacular flower garden next to the campus. Great photo opportunity!

Great place to take relatives; the kids can careen around and the flowers are lovely. You can make notes for your own garden or just stroll around and have something innocuous to discuss in a tempestuous election year. Lots of parking, but be sure you...More

You can spend hours choosing next year's new, but tried and true plants for Colorado climate and soils. Many in pots. A lovely display. Incredible color. Not to be missed.

Beautiful display of annuals in summer! Walked around while waiting for my CSU student and took some awesome photos. Arts center across the street is a lovely building, with art exhibits. Worth a stop!

Yes, it's wheelchair accessible. Some views, though, require getting around a foot path on the grounds. For more detail, I would contact their website thru Colorado State University.
During what dates and times is it open. In particular, is it "visitable" in Oct 12-18 time frame? Costs?

It is free; parking is free, tho it's technically on the Colorado State University campus, so while classes are in session it can be tricky to find a spot. Later in the year, after the snow falls, many of the plants are... More
