Out of an abundance of caution, and to limit the potential spread of COVID-19, the City of Fort Collins is acting on direction from state leadership and public health partners and has closed all cultural facilities. We are working with state and local officials to determine a plan for reopening and will communicate details as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented time.

The Gardens on Spring Creek is the community botanic garden of Fort Collins, Colorado.  Our 18-acre site opened in 2004 as part of a vital public / private 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 improve 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
