The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens (9 acres, 3.6 ha) are located in Lions Park in Cheyenne, Wyoming, with an associated High Plains Arboretum located five miles (8 km) northwest of Cheyenne at an elevation of 6,200 feet (1,900 m).

The gardens began as a vision in 1977 to build a non-profit, solar heated greenhouse. Today, the 6,800 square foot (630 m2) conservatory consists of three greenhouses. The first is filled with tropical plants, herb and cacti gardens and a waterfall pond filled with Koi fish. The second is used primarily for growing vegetables, the third is focused on propagation of bedding plants and flowers for the botanic garden grounds and all flowers for the Cheyenne park system. Outside are many gardens featuring many flowers and cacti.

  • This botanic gardens is a lovely place to spend an hour or two walking around and enjoying the beauty of nature. We visited early in the year before some of the outdoor plants had grown and bloomed, but it was still quite nice.
  • Loved this place. It was a awesome experience and they even have a live turtle and birds. People were friendly. Learned something just astonishing about the plants around us. Even got a Christmas cactus from the shop!
