Relax in a tranquil, well-tended botanical garden abundant with colorful plants and flowers at Yampa River Botanic Park. You can visit the garden between dawn and dusk, from spring until the first heavy snow. The garden sits at an altitude of 2,100 m (6,800 ft) near the Yampa River, with the two-month long frost-free growing season arguably the best time to visit, as summer is dry and sunny, and winters get extremely cold with heavy snows. Sit and enjoy the atmosphere at the pond in the center of the park, then take a closer look at each of the clearly labeled plants. With our international travel planner, Steamboat Springs attractions like Yampa River Botanic Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
