Red Butte Garden is the largest botanical garden in the Intermountain West and together with the University of Utah, is a state arboretum. 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. The Garden; which is community-funded; is renowned for its numerous plant collections, themed gardens, 524,000 springtime blooming bulbs; including a vast collection of daffodils; world-class outdoor summer concert series, beautiful private event spaces, and award-winning horticulture-based educational programs.
Red Butte Garden is a state arboretum established by the Utah Legislature at the University of Utah, which is also a state entity. Two bills were recently passed by the Utah Legislature—these bills bar the University of Utah and Red Butte Garden from requiring face-coverings or requiring vaccinations for visitors and guests attending events. We will continue to encourage all of our guests to follow health and safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Salt Lake County Health Department.
