Red Butte Garden & Arboretum

Red Butte Garden, a part of the University of Utah, is accessible to all students, faculty, and staff. Students can visit the garden at no charge, and faculty and staff receive a discounted admission. The Garden is a beautiful setting for weddings, anniversaries, corporate retreats, holiday parties, or any special occasion. Open all year long, the Orangerie can be set for a formal dinner or open house event. Wedding ceremonies can also be held in selected areas of the Garden during warmer months. With over 100 acres including display, walking paths, natural areas and hiking trails, Red Butte Garden is the largest botanical garden in the Intermountain West that tests, displays, and interprets regional horticulture.
