  • Quiet and peaceful with a wonderful waterway and top notch flower gardens flanked by giant boulders enscribed with the songs of John Denver. A must visit Park for anyone going to Aspen
  • Serene. Escape. Beautiful. Spiritual. Breathtaking.
  • I saw this and thought, "somewhere protecting John Denvers". But alas, it is a very beautiful garden, in which I was able to reflect on the pace of life and beauty of nature.
  • I grew up with John Denver it was my mothers favorite singer. The world lost a kind peaceful person and I came here to reflect on his life and contributions he gave to this world. Peace and love from Hayfield Minnesota , you were loved by many.
  • Have never been there but by the pictures it looks so beautiful and I grew up listening to John Denver I'm hopen to go there this summer
