My beloved granddaughters Mia and Jayda at a pond in the lovely park:

 

The Hudson Gardens 30 acres (121,000 m²) are non-profit botanical gardens located along the bank of the South Platte River, at 6115 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton, Colorado, USA. (Littleton is a suburb of the Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Statistical Area.) They are open 365 days a year, with no admission fee from November through April.

 

The Gardens began in 1941 as the private garden of Colonel King C. and Evelyn Leigh Hudson, and became public in 1996. They contain varied grounds ranging from high, dry prairie to river wetlands, and feature plants that thrive in the dry Colorado climate. The gardens include: Conifer Grove, Cottage Garden, Cutting Garden, Deciduous Woodland, Demonstration Garden, Fragrance Garden, Garden Canopy, Herb Garden, Iris Bed, Mary Carter Greenway, Ornamental Grass Garden, Oval Garden, Rock Garden Canyon, Rose Garden, Santa Fe Garden, Secret Garden, Shade Garden, Water Garden, Wetlands, Wildflower Meadow, and a Xeriscape Garden.
