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. The Gardens is City of Fort Collins Facility. Following a two-year, $6 million expansion project, The Gardens offers an expanded Visitor’s Center and gift shop, Butterfly House, Everitt Pavilion and Great Lawn, along with 5 acres of new gardens to explore.

Our Vision

  • 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
