Walk along the winding footpath that leads to a quiet pond. Rest peacefully on a bench or explore the garden during any season and become inspired by the abundant colors of nature.

Mrs. Walsh's Garden exists as a source of pleasure, education and inspiration by demonstrating the use of plants native to Estes Park and the surrounding Rocky Mountain Region.

This beautiful garden is located at the west end of Elkhorn Avenue across from Performance Park. The garden is open daily from dawn to dusk, is wheelchair accessible and admission is free.
