Red Butte Garden is one of the largest botanical gardens in the Intermountain West and together with the University of Utah, is the State Arboretum of Utah. We are located on 100 acres in the foothills on the eastern edge of the University of Utah campus. The Garden has welcomed guests since 1985 and consists of over 21 acres of developed gardens and five miles of hiking trails winding through an extensive Natural Area. Our foothill location also allows for sweeping views of the valley, extending mountain ranges, and the Great Salt Lake.
Themed garden areas include: Four Seasons Garden, Herb Garden, Children's Garden, Fragrance Garden, Floral Walk, Medicinal Garden, Water Pavilion Garden, Rose Garden, Canyon Meadow, Water Conservation Garden, Six Bridges Trail, and others. Stay tuned for more information about our themed gardens as we continue to update this page.
