 Betty Ford Alpine Gardens
Located in Ford Park, Vail CO
(970) 476-0103

A visit to the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens during the summer months provides gardeners an opportunity to enjoy the unique beauty of a high altitude garden.  Located in Vail at an altitude of 8,200 feet, the botanic gardens encompass several distinct gardens: an alpine tundra garden, a colorful mountain perennial garden, an Asian-influenced meditation garden, the alpine rock garden, the schoolhouse garden that is the home of the horticultural therapy program and a children's garden.  Each garden features trees, shrubs and flowers that grow well in the Rocky Mountains.  Numerous ponds, waterfalls, and boulders enhance the beauty of the grounds, while benches placed strategically along the walkways entice visitors to sit and enjoy the lovely garden and mountain views. Gardeners will especially appreciate the informative plant labels and the displays that describe the garden’s plants.  The gardens are open to the public free of charge.
