As if we didn’t love them enough—Gardens on Spring Creek has big news afoot of even more to adore. For starters, this year sees an expansion of the Great Lawn, which will seat up to 1,500 people for outdoor performances. Then two acres of Prairie, Foothills and Wetland gardens will showcase native plants. But our fave? The Undaunted Garden, designed by big-time landscape designer Lauren Springer Ogden, which will feature plants (native and non-) that thrive in local conditions. Think of it as a giant glimpse of what-could-be for those of you ready to ditch your bluegrass lawns.
All these upgrades come with special shout-outs to the Bohemian Foundation, Woodward, Inc., and the City of Fort Collins along with hundreds of community supporters who contributed through The Gardens’ annual campaign and Colorado Gives Day in 2015 and 2016.
