Lava Hot Springs Sunken Gardens

The natural setting of the Sunken Gardens showcase native and imported plants and flowers throughout the entire season. Just off Main Street above the World Famous Hot Pools, these gardens are free of charge and used for relaxation and viewing enjoyment. Watch the birds and feel the cool breeze all season long. The rock walls which look like lava are actually the remains of algae reefs formed in the Portneuf River long ago and now provide a beautiful setting of flowers, wildlife and nature.
