But, the Garden has so much more than just pretty flowers. Because the Red Butte Garden is a part of the University of Utah, it is also a museum of living plants, which are used in research and conservation. Want something fun to do during the summer months? From May to September, visitors can witness a variety of outdoor performances that include concerts, film screenings, and local theatre productions. The Garden also hosts other events throughout the year from photography exhibits to pruning workshops.
The Red Butte Garden is just a small snippet of the true beauty of Salt Lake City. After enjoying a leisurely stroll in the Garden, experience nature in a new way on the back of an ATV or snowmobile.
