YAMPA RIVER BOTANIC PARK
The Yampa River Botanic Park is a gorgeous little gem tucked between the downtown area of Steamboat and the mountain resort area making it not only a gorgeous ceremony location but an incredibly convenient one for receptions held in any area of Steamboat Springs. If you are planning to host a smaller wedding you may even be able to use the Trillium House which is the park’s headquarters overlooking the Yampa River and Emerald Mountain. It can host 49 people indoors and the flagstone patio can host up to 100 guests.
The Yampa River Botanic Park also has a lovely outdoor ceremony venue on the green next to the pond. When you enter the park you stroll through a beautiful flower-filled garden path full of Colorado Columbines and tons of aspen trees before reaching the open green amphitheater area where weddings are held.
The cherry on top for this garden is that it is surprisingly affordable for a mountain resort town. And 2017 marks it’s 20th anniversary as a park. It was once a horse pasture and has grown into a six acre park full of ponds, berms, and over fifty different gardens. It is truly one of my favorite little jewels in all of Steamboat Springs.
