- Yes, this alpine garden is named after the same Betty Ford who claims Gerald Ford as a spouse. As a part-time Vail Valley resident, she offers her name and time to this stunning garden that is remarkable for its low-key beauty. With blue spruce surrounded ponds and cascading waterfalls, it meshes wonderfully with the adjoining mountains and serves as a spectacular visual greeting to Gerald Ford Amphitheatre visitors. More than 1,000 alpine and subalpine perennials blanket its beds, creating a quilt of natural color when the wildflowers bloom in mid-July. Admission is free.
