CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Release) - Due to a power supply part failure, and supply chain issues in acquiring the replacement part, the elevator at the Shane Smith Grand Conservatory is temporarily closed. We apologize for the inconvenience of access to the Grand Conservatory’s second and third floor spaces. The elevator is anticipated to be repaired by mid-September. The second and third floor will be accessible by stairs during this time.

The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens (710 S. Lions Park Dr.) and Paul Smith Children’s Village are open Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is Wyoming’s only public garden. It exists in one of the most challenging garden climates in the lower 48 states (high winds, regular hail, high altitude, little winter snow cover, and unpredictable first and last frosts). Come explore the Shane Smith Grand Conservatory as well as 27 specialty landscapes and the Paul Smith Children’s Village.

Senior, youth, and handicapped volunteers provide much of the physical labor. This is also home to Engine 1242, the oldest locomotive engine in Wyoming. Admission is free. Donations are encouraged.

Questions may be directed to the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens at (307) 637-6458 or email at
