We broke ground!

The Gardens on Spring Creek broke ground November 7, 2017 on five acres of new gardens, which will include the Great Lawn and stage, Undaunted Garden, Prairie Garden, Foothills Garden, and several educational and themed gardens.

Located north of the existing Visitor’s Center and south of the Spring Creek Trail, the $2.5 million dollar project marks the final step to the completion of the community botanic garden’s Master Plan.

“This day has been long anticipated, and we are ecstatic to finally begin,” said Michelle Provaznik, Executive Director, Gardens on Spring Creek. “As a true partnership between the City of Fort Collins and the Friends of The Gardens, this project is a culmination of a dream that started over thirty years ago with a group of engaged community members who believed in the power of gardens. Today, we begin our last lap in bringing that dream to life.”

Lead donors to the project have included Bohemian Foundation, Woodward, Inc., and the City of Fort Collins along with over forty other large contributors. In addition, hundreds of community supporters contributed through The Gardens’ annual campaign and Colorado Gives Day in 2015 and 2016... More info...
