I’m a big nature lover, so when I noticed the botanical gardens...I def made the trip. There are over 20 acres of display gardens, so you can easily spend an entire afternoon walking around and taking it all in. The Daffidil and Succulent displays were some of my favorites. They also have an extensive collection of trees which were quite remarkable, especially since I visited during the fall. If you’re looking for a low-key way to spend an afternoon and re-center yourself, this is definitely worth your time.

This is a fun attraction. Grab a map and try to find the 14 statues. It's a nice little hike and a fun adventure for the kids. There were more adults than kids the day we went.
The statues are amazing and really cute. The gardens are really nice.

First let me say that visiting gardens is my wife's passion. This is a beautiful garden on a hillside. They have used the contours to make a series of excellent gardens, including a fairly new water efficient garden. We spent a couple of hours there. The views over the valley are also pleasant. The visitor center has a shop and some art displays, but lacks a refreshment facility. It was warm and there were plenty of water fountains spread around the garden.

My favorite parts of the gardens are along the creek and the wonderful area that is all plants native to Utah. Peaceful, beautiful, and very special. Also a fabulous gift shop with interesting pieces.

Last year, we attended a concert there in the Amphitheater. Beautiful location, lots of parking and great sound. Can’t wait to return this year.
