This is a really small garden, but the variety of flowers, the colors, and the placement of them were very beautiful. There is a prayer wheel, a small flowing water, and beautiful walkways. There is no real entrance fee but there is a donation request.

We enjoyed the surrounding fall color and mountain views as well as the content of the garden. There is a very lovely Tibetan pavilion and sculptures and water features. It is certainly worth a stop as you head to or from Ketchum.

I didn't have high expectations based on the other reviews but we had some extra time and it was on the way to where we were going. Poor folks look like they need more resources. I appreciate the time and effort by the volunteers, but...More
