I can most assuredly attest to the fact that the Alligator Gardens & Snake Stockade did indeed exist out on East Colfax in Aurora. I met a woman who even showed me where the old gator ponds were! I also have an old article from the Aurora Advocate dated August 8, 1963, announcing Walter F. Cobb had opened Alligator Gardens.

Jonny, this is very exciting news! Would you be able to forward me a copy of the article with the top of the page showing the date as well? arhernandez@denverlibrary.org Thanks!

As a child Mom and Dad took us to Alligator Gardens in Aurora. I thought it was on Alameda near Lowry but I’m not sure. I was all of 10 years old... around 1964.

Thanks so much for your comment. It has been difficult finding people who remember this place.
