Project Summary

Master Plan Completion

Planting the Seed to Build Community

For over a decade, the Gardens on Spring Creek has grown as a special place and source of positive, engaging, and creative opportunities for people to connect with plants and with each other.

Formation of a public/private partnership between the City of Fort Collins and the non-profit Friends of the Gardens on Spring Creek, the Fort Collins voters enthusiastically supported the proposal for the creation of a community horticulture center through a ballot initiative, Building Community Choices (BCC), and in 2004, The Garden officially opened its doors.

As we look forward to our future, for The Gardens to fully achieve its mission and vision, to meet the demands of our growing community, and to become a leading cultural destination that Fort Collins deserves, the time is now to complete the Master Plan.

  • Phase 1: Approximately 5 acres of gardens including the Great Lawn, Undaunted Garden, Prairie and Foothills Garden.
  • Phase 2: Visitor's Center completion includes a conservatory, large meeting room, observation tower, new entry with gift shop, a small cafe, and additional office space.
  • Phase 3: Endowment Fund to ensure the long-term sustainability of operations and programs at The Gardens.
