The highlight of the garden was the turtles. Other than that it wasn't impressive. There was only 2 butterflies in the butterfly room. (We saw more butterflies at our hotel ). The plants and flowers were beautiful though.

The fundraising events always bring in bands popular with the locals. Very low key and pleasant evening of great music all for a good cause.

I will defer comments about the Gardens themselves to others. The reason I liked it is that it provided parking for the trail that takes you under Highway 50 to the wonderful Truss railroad bridge. This bridge was built the year Grand Junction was founded,...More
