I would plan to spend maybe a couple hours here. It's not huge but if you take your time it's enjoyable. There are local plants and plants from around the world. It's 3.00-5.00 per person to get in. There are resident animals like box turtles,...More

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

Attractive gardens near to the river and not far from town. Has a butterfly house and a reasonable range of plants and habitats. Ponds where you can feed fish. There is an admission fee which detracts from it being somewhere you'd just pop in, but...More
