Had a very pleasant time walking through the various sections of the gardens. A good option on how to spend part of the weekend. The highlight was the Climatron.

I took my family here on a day trip. We found the gardens to be very enjoyable. I think this would be a nice place to visit anytime of the year.

We had only a short time to view the gardens so we took the shuttle tour. It was quite informative, and we stopped at the controlled environment building with hothouse plants from all over the world - signs identified each plant. lovely!

This beautiful complex of multiple themed gardens surprised me and impressed me well beyond expectations. If I lived here I would own an annual membership and visit often, just for the peace, quiet and beauty.

This is a true gem in the city. The floral arrangements and the beautiful landscape will inspire anyone to want to garden. It displays the true artistry of gardening and the outdoors.

I've never seen anyone do that, and I've never seen lockers anywhere inside the Ridgway Visitor Center. You should call the Gardens to ask. Good luck.
