The Gardens on Spring Creek is committed to being a world class botanical garden for our community. We aim to serve the community in a welcoming, inclusive and accessible way. Our team is committed to evaluating and growing Gardens for All to respond to the changing demographics and needs of our community.
In order to improve access for our community, we developed our Gardens for All program funded by our community and the City of Fort Collins. This program also builds on community partnerships to directly reach individuals and families in need.

The Gardens has partnered with Poudre River Library District to offer a Gardens 'All Access' Pass through their Curiosity Pass Program that any library card holder can "check out" to access the Gardens on Spring Creek for free, just as they would a favorite book or movie.
For our community experiencing physical and developmental disabilities that would like to visit The Gardens with their caregiver, we have discounted admission with free admission for their caregiver.
For members of our community that are eligible for SNAP benefits, we invite you to visit The Gardens for a reduced fee of $1.
Partnering with community non-profits allows The Gardens to reach more members of the community who could benefit from accessing The Gardens. This subset of Gardens for All is to help individuals and families experiencing hardship, including but not limited to poverty, physical and mental health, crisis, and economic instability.
