Overview

You don't want to miss the new three story conservatory! It opened in August 2017. The Grand Conservatory features a tropical conservatory, a Navy submarine periscope, and several areas of respite. The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is Wyoming’s only botanic garden. It exists in one of the most challenging gardening climates in the lower 48 states (high winds, regular hail, high altitude, little winter snow cover and unpredictable first and last frosts). Come explore our brand new Grand Conservatory as well as 27 specialty landscapes, where senior, youth and handicapped volunteers provide a majority of the physical labor. This is also home to Engine 1242, the oldest locomotive engine in Wyoming.

The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens has undergone an unprecedented upgrade with the building of the Grand Conservatory. This permits a veritable oasis in the long cold Wyoming winter. The conservatory was only recently completed so I would consider this campus still (slightly) under construction and a...More

Unfortunately our growing season in Wyoming doesn't start until after Memorial Day, so nothing was blooming during your visit. We are closed Mondays and Tuesdays, but we are open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. I hope you are able to visit again...More

Early Spring and everything is brown. So lucky to find this gem in Cheyenne. The 3 story building houses some lovely tropical plants, a Koi fish pond and small seating area to enjoy the plants, smells and indoor temperature. Growing inside was sugar cane, pineapple,...More

We visited Cheyenne Botanic Gardens while in Wyoming for Thanksgiving. The flowers and plants were beautiful. On the second floor of the gardens was a periscope. A former Navy man had an idea to put it in the Botanic Gardens. He volunteers there and tells...More

I was fortunate enough to visit Cheyenne right after they opened the remodeled gardens! This is such a wonderful addition to Lions Park! Very educational as well!
