With a mission to enrich the lives of people and foster environmental stewardship through horticulture, the Gardens on Spring Creek opened in May 2004 as part of a vital public/private partnership between the city of Fort Collins and the Friends of the Gardens on Spring Creek.
Situated on a 18 acre site along the Spring Creek corridor, The Gardens currently features a Plant Select® Demonstration Garden, a Children’s Garden, the Garden of Eatin’, a Rock Garden, Sustainable Backyard, and the Xeric Parkway Strip.
Several demo gardens also fill the site including a dahlia, daylily, and turf site.
The Gardens also supports school and community garden outreach programs, school field trip tours, year-round educational programs for all ages, volunteer opportunities, and hosts several community special events.
