We experienced the garden in Febuary to see the orchid display. It was wonderful and worth the effort. We are looking forward to visiting it again in warmer weather.

Really enjoyed the Chihuly exhibit. It was magical especially during the day. Only go when they have special exhibits as the gardens are ok nothing spectacular.

I actually used to work there taking surveys for a magazine many years ago, and truly loved going to work every day for two weeks because it was so amazingly gorgeous! My job was to ask people what they liked or disliked (which I can't imagine) about the gardens. The surveys were always favorable. I haven't been back for such... More

Fantasic botanic gardens in the heart of Denver. Wish the weather was better so we could have actually seen Cheeson Park, which is adjacent to the Gardens in an historic neighborhood.

The grounds are very well maintained, beautiful flowers, wonderful lay-out, easy to get around (with my 82 year old Mother). The Chihuly exhibit was amazing. They always make it interesting. I'm looking forward to their Summer concert series.

I had not been to the Gardens in quite some time but went for the exhibit. It is a good place to visit if you are visiting from out of town if you like seeing exotic and domestic plants. A visit here will only take a couple of hours of your day.

DBG is actually built on the grounds of a former cemetery that was moved last century. It's a peaceful and well-tended facility with excellent horticultural resources and many spaces to walk through and relax in. There are frequent programs, shows and concerts which can make parking/ visiting during peak hours challenging, but the gift shop and restaurants are also excellent.

There is never a time of year that this green, humid place isn't a welcome treat for dried-out Denverites or tourists! Beautiful grounds, great venue for dayime or evening (especially summer but they have lit events in the winter). It's like traveling but without the expensive hotels and airplane tix - just walk in the door and poof! You're transported!

This is a lovely place to visit any time of the year. There are cool and shady spots when it's hot and sunny. Viewing the garden in winter is beautiful from a different perspective. It's a great place to relax and contemplate.
