  • I went with a group and we learned about a lot of species. Some resemble one another so I didn't remember all of them by the end-the again I wasn't interested in horticulture the way I am in astronomy...  more »
  • Beautiful roses, what a suprise on my walk. Various colors, no fee - open parkland. Part of complex where you can see additional historic sites.  more »
  • The gardens, located next to the Old Idaho State Penitentiary, are an Idaho gem. The garden was established in 1984 and operates without government funding. There are several themed gardens, including...  more »

  • Such lovely grounds. What an amazing garden, very inspiring!
  • Bonnie Raitt was great and the sound was great! However, the Outlaw Field venue has me totally turned off for any future shows. There is too much security for the over 60 crowd who attended, i.e., no pocket knives, empty your pant pockets, metal detector wands, etc. The screeners were nice enough, but I just didn't feel that my wife and I needed to go through all of that. If my safety requires such security, then I probably don't need to be there. Also, long lines in front of the food trucks, and $8 beer and wine. Not much chance of anyone being inebriated with those prices. Finding a decent spot to sit requires you to come earlier than an hour before the concert. Also, getting out of the parking lots is slow and I was not able to turn left onto Warm Springs where i needed to go.
  • This review is being sent regarding the recent concert at the Outlaw field Monday evening, presenting Paul Simon. I was shocked at the disorganization of the entire evening! One line after another, after another! This truly made the entire evening a hassle. Two lines to enter the gate, which don't even open until one hour prior to the concert. Which caused people to not even be settled prior to the start of the music, and as a result a late start. Another line for drink tokens, and yet another for wine and beer. Some people stood in line for a drink token for 40 minutes! We are considering giving up our Tony Bennett tickets because the process makes it almost not worth it. May I make some suggestions? #1) Open the gates at 5 pm for members, 5:30 pm for non-members. This by allowing everyone access and ability to settle in prior to the beginning of the music. #2) Let drink tokens be purchased on-line at same time of ticket purchase. Drink tokens can be the same color as the wrist band, and printed out prior to the event, at everyone's convenience. Sincerely, Kristin Ernest
  • Paul Simon was fantastic however the venue and its services, not so much. When spending $80 on a ticket, you would think there would be more than enough room to sit and be comfortable. We felt we had to search for a seat and fight for it. Very unorganized and too crowded.
  • Blues festival was fun. But no shade was tough. Beautiful gardens.
