“This is my mother’s dream come true, she would be amazed at all this.”
-Susan Ford Bales
Vail's Ford Park has undergone quite the transformation over the past several years, making it one of the most lively summer hubs in the Valley. Putting the finishing touches on the park and bringing Betty Ford's dream to fruition, the Betty Ford Alpine Garden Education Center opened this summer with astounding support and excitement from longtime friends and donors.
Tucked into the hillside, the new education center features not only offices and meeting space, but also a greenhouse to display alpine plants. The center will act as the central point from which the foundation can share their vast wealth of knowledge, educational materials, and plant specimens with the public.
