In 1933, the area known as Garden Creek Falls was given to the Rotary Club of Casper. In 1938, the club transferred ownership to the City of Casper with the stipulation that the area always remain a park. Since 2010, dozens of Rotary-led projects in the area have made it almost unrecognizable. The Rotary Club of Casper has added parking, benches, shelters, stairs, railings, bridges, and other amenities that make the location accessible and enjoyable by all! Sitting at the base of Garden Creek Falls and the 4.5 mile Bridle Trail, Rotary Park is now one of the most popular Casper tourist attractions, providing plenty of room for families to rest, hike, camp, or cook-out.
With multiple picnic tables, iron foot bridges and a gazebo, the park is an ideal spot for a picturesque afternoon. It only takes a few minutes to hike from the parking area to the base of the falls, but many visitors pack a picnic lunch and make an afternoon of it. Sitting among the aspens and ponderosa pine, it’s easy to forget that you’re just a few miles from the heart of the city.
Rotary Park is located at the base of Casper Mountain. The park and its Garden Creek Falls are one of Casper’s most treasured, iconic mountain getaways. From the cascading waterfall to the towering pines, you are sure to fall in love with nature all over again.
