ZooMontana Botanical Park
The gardens and accredited arboretum at ZooMontana offer the community a wonderful destination for solitude and beauty. Nine gardens, large and small, dot the landscape at ZooMontana, all connected by an extensive trail system that winds through the natural beauty of the Zoo's grounds. The gardens are a compliment to the Zoo environment, welcoming guests young and old.
