    When: From 06/23/2014 to 08/31/2014

    The Betty Ford Gardens in Vail, Colorado, located at the foot of Vail Mountain, feature an array of stunning alpine rock gardens, a kaleidoscope of flowers, ponds, waterfalls, and beautiful high elevation plants, all laid out in dramatic fashion…sure to please locals and visitors alike!   At 8,250 feet above sea level, the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in Vail, Colorado are the highest and one of the  most visited botanical gardens in North America, providing free access to over 100,000 visitors annually.

    This is definitely something for the whole family to enjoy.  The gardens are open year-round daily from dawn to dusk. There are a multitude of activities for kids of all ages to explore and learn; an outdoor classroom, no matter the season. Peak flower season is June – August.  And, while most visitors don’t have a problem with the elevation, we recommend you bring sunscreen, wear a hat and comfortable walking shoes and stay hydrated. Water is available in the gift shop during business hours.

    The Betty Ford Alpine Gardens also offer adult programs, youth programs and children’s activities and events.
