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

A delight garden to refresh and take a colorful walk along Western Colorado's offerings of color and variety of plants and vines. Many native plants and always some color to brighten the day. Close to County Fair grounds and activities throughout the year.
