The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Complex is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The grounds continue to be open daily from dawn to dusk.

In taking precautions during this time, only the first floor of the conservatory is open, and there is a designated path to encourage social distancing. Staff members wear masks, and we encourage visitors to also wear masks while indoors, we also maintain a rigorous cleaning and sanitizing routine daily. At the Paul Smith Children's Village, wading in the pond and toys are currently not available.

We are closed on Sunday and Monday.
