The Gardens on Spring Creek is the community botanic garden of Fort Collins, Colorado.  Our 18-acre site opened in 2004 as part of an important partnership between the City of Fort Collins and the Friends of the Gardens on Spring Creek.  Following a two-year, $6 million expansion project, The Gardens now offers an expanded Visitor’s Center and gift shop, Butterfly House, Everitt Pavilion and Great Lawn, along with five acres of new gardens to explore.

Our Vision
To be a world-class botanic garden that is community oriented, educational, experiential and sustainable.

To enrich the lives of people and foster environmental stewardship through horticulture.

We are dedicated to the following values:

  • Cultivating community through a passion for horticulture
  • Honoring our local place, both the natural and human environments
  • Demonstrating respect and compassion for all people
  • Serving the northern Colorado community through public involvement and partnerships
  • Providing exceptional service with enthusiasm, creativity and cost-effectiveness
