Stroll into serenity when you enter Mrs. Walsh’s Garden. Visitors to the Garden will find respite as they walk through this mountain garden or sit on a bench to rest. Whether you are an avid gardener or simply enjoy the abundant colors of nature, Mrs. Walsh’s Garden will awaken your senses as you enjoy the flora of life zones from the foothills to the alpine tundra.
A winding footpath will lead you to a quiet pond accompanied by a small waterfall. Other garden elements that can also be found include: a beautiful bronze statue, a dry stream bed, sitting nooks, garden art, and an abundance of flowers and plants native to the surrounding Rocky Mountain Region. As you travel through the Garden, you will see plant displays that are well-identified, native to the foothills, montane, subalpine, and alpine life zones.
Mrs. Walsh’s Garden is a community treasure that began with the enthusiasm and vision of Judy Lamy. With her gracious purchase of the land in 1996, she was able to begin the project in honor of her grandmother, Mrs. Winifred Walsh. Today, Estes Park residents and seasonal visitors are able to enjoy the garden for pleasure, inspiration and education.
