  • The Botanical Gardens are a fantastic place to go kill a few hours in Grand Junction, especially if you have children. There are a number of attractions, including a koi pond, butterfly garden, greenhouse, and exhibits of early pioneer equipment and living. The greenhouse and outdoor area showcase native and non-native plant life, many of which have informational plaques. Check out Watson Island, in the same park, for a really great disc-golf course.
  • Worth the price, very cool and informative. There's also a gift shop. Not too busy, lots of cool plants and a cool cat finishes the tour for you
  • Doing so much good for the river front area educating the younger generation and will make things better for years to come
  • Very nice to visit and hang out for a bit. My toddler loved it.
  • I have visited this place many times. I have yet to see the butterflies, cause every time I go, they are waiting for a shipment. The gardens are so clean, and I love the lambs ear plant. I would love to have that plant in my yard, but our house is set where we get burning sun.
