The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is Wyoming's only public garden. It exists in one of the most challenging garden climates in the lower 48 states (high winds, regular hail, high altitude, little winter snow cover, and unpredictable first and last frosts). Come explore the Shane Smith Grand Conservatory, as well as 27 specialty landscapes and the Paul Smith Children's Village. This is also home to Engine 1242, the oldest locomotive engine in Wyoming.
Admission is free. Donations are encouraged.
