Absolutely beautiful and stunning flowers! Very colorful with a couple water features too. There's even a couple benches for you to soak in the great garden with mountains in the background. There's also a great playground right next to the garden for your kids to be entertained, as well as a gorgeous and relaxing creek to walk along. Definitely recommend!

What a wonderful garden!! We were there in mid-May, so there wasn't a lot in bloom, but I will definitely be back next month. I was particularly impressed with the children's garden, which provided a wealth of information that isn't just for kids. Be sure you plan some time to see not just the gardens, but the Ford Amphitheater, the walk along the creek, the park and the children's play area. My congratulations to Vail community planning, who did a great job on the area.

The venue coordinator at the gardens named Ellen was extremely unprofessional and rude from the moment we arrived. She treated the clients like they were an inconvenience and she was emotionally unstable for unknown reasons. The gardens are gorgeous, the facility is clean, but the employee handling the event was very inhospitable and disrespectful. She involved her boyfriend in asking family to pack up the event items when there was no need for intervention. She called the police and the officer was confused as to what she was talking about. It was very weird. I would rather not leave a bad review publicly for the gardens but she left me no choice. She was not receptive when we expressed frustrations after the wedding. We expected so much more professionalism from this well known location.

Truly a great experience. We walked around for a while and took in the fantastic scenery and mindful curation of flora. Clearly great attention has been taken to every aspect of this garden. Great for kids and adults alike. Sit and appreciate this beauty.

Very beautiful place and its free for public. With a backdrop of the mountains and a stream passing by this is a truly beautiful place. This place has lots of varieties of plants and statues. And also has a very good childrens play area.
