In the spring and summer, guests can walk the gorgeous grounds, plan a picnic, or sit and reflect on one of the benches by a pond. Visitors can also get some garden inspiration by viewing the flowers and vegetables maintained in partnership with the CSU Extension-Arapahoe County Colorado Master Gardener Volunteer Program.

Visiting Hudson Gardens during the fall is a given, due to the wide range of trees planted here.

During the holiday season, the property transforms into a winter wonderland complete with sparkling lights, giant snowmen, and glowing reindeer.

Nixon's Coffee Shop can be found in the middle of the gardens, which adds an extra perk to the park. A welcome center and gift shop are also worth stopping into.
