This is a small but lush garden of local flowers and plants, done in memory of Mrs. Walsh, the founder's grandmother, I believe. Although we passed it the first time, we were... read more

A tiny, roadside garden on the outskirts of Estes Park. It was closed when we were there, but I would imagine it would warrant a short stop. Being right next to the main highway into Rocky Mtn Ntl Park and the noise from passing traffic it isn't an idyllic location but perhaps the sound of the small brook masks the... More

I believe this attraction is still closed due to the flood of 2013 ~ at least that is what the sign on the gate indicates ~ you can still see some of the garden from the sidewalk

This little garden on the west end of town is a quiet oasis where you can wander, enjoy the plants and sit on a bench and recover from the tourist town. Open from dawn to dusk and free.

Based upon the 3 reviews, we purposefully sought out the garden. Turns out it is actually directly across the street from Glass Works, just a bit north of town. You can park at Glass Works and just cross the street. Even though the garden is currently closed, due to "safety reasons" (or, so says a sign on the gate), you... More

This little garden and it's flowers and sculpture can be part of your walk from the Big Horn restaurant to downtown Estes. You'll want to take pictures. It's a lovely and fitting memorial to an apparently good person.

This is a small but lush garden of local flowers and plants, done in memory of Mrs. Walsh, the founder's grandmother, I believe. Although we passed it the first time, we were glad we went back. No admission fee, a very peaceful place and names and descriptions of all the plants. The sculpture near the waterfall is kind of surprising... More

We saw a brochure for this garden in our campground, (and there is a geocache there) so we went to find it. We looked and looked over days and couldn't find the garden! When we finally saw it, the gate was inconspicuous and the trees were overgrown so it kind of looked hidden. It is across the street from Tregent... More
