National Public Garden Day is an annual celebration of the nation’s public gardens to raise awareness of the role botanical gardens play in promoting environmental stewardship, conservation, green spaces, and education in communities nationwide.
The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is proud to be Wyoming’s only Public Garden.

The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens now has a construction fence that changes how you access the Garden’s greenhouse and offices, as well as the Paul Smith Children’s Village. Please note that both the Children’s Village and the Botanic Gardens Greenhouse and Offices remain open for normal hours (see below).
The construction fence surrounds and eliminates our main parking lot (between the Greenhouse and the Children’s Village). For the Children’s Village parking, it is best to continue past the Village and make your first left and park at the old Community House’s parking lot. From there follow the sidewalk west to the main entrance of the Village.
For parking to access the Greenhouse and offices. Enter Lions Park as you would to go to the Kiwanis Community House. Continue on the park road heading south of the Kiwanis Community House, go past a park gazebo on your left and a Boy Scout building– also on your left. There you will find a parking lot. You can also continue on that road a bit and park adjacent to Sloan’s Lake. Then walk southwest towards the main door to the Greenhouse.
