Montrose Botanic Garden 2019 Master Plan

The 2019 Montrose Botanic Garden Master Plan by Mt Daly Enterprises, LLC, is the fourth master plan for the 3.5 acre garden since it was a vision in 1995 of Jim Chaplin, the first president of the Montrose Botanical Society. 


The current master plan was over 18 months in development, soliciting input from the Society’s membership, stakeholders in the community and the general public.  It is focused on the undeveloped lower two thirds of the site, featuring five gardens: the Environmental Education Center with “Happy Hollow” Children’s Garden, the Plateau Garden, the Semi-Desert Garden, the Serenity Garden and the historical Jacal Homestead with an Agricultural Demonstration Area.


 In contrast to past plans, major water features have been pared down along with formal garden designs in accordance with southwest Colorado’s arid climate and casual life style.  What has not changed is the Society’s commitment to development of Botanic Gardens for demonstration, education and leisure.
