The mission of the Ogden Botanical Gardens is to promote inner-city beauty and educational opportunities for everyone in a diverse and sustainable garden setting. The Ogden Botanical Gardens is dedicated to helping all visitors find answers and glean ideas to inspire and enhance their own quality of life through improved plant selection, cultural practices and environmentally sound activities.
Established in 1994, the Ogden Botanical Gardens are one of the most treasured places in the Ogden area. The 11-acre public gardens is beautifully situated along the Ogden River, and is home to rose, cottage, four-seasons, Japanese, water-wise, cactus, power-line and other demonstration gardens, along with an outdoor classroom. With hundreds of perennials, annuals, and trees it provides an ideal setting for a leisurely walk, lunch, family gathering, wedding or reception, company, picnic, photography session or just a serene place for contemplation.
Visitors can find answers and glean ideas to inspire and enhance their own quality of life through improved plant selection, cultural practices, and environmentally sound methods. Classes and events through the year offer opportunities to connect with other gardeners (whether novices or those with hard-earned green thumbs) to learn and share ideas.
