If botanic gardens are your thing, the Denver Botanic Gardens are well worth a visit. Very nicely laid out, with a number of different "rooms". You can see everything in an hour or two, or take as long as you like.

Love these gardens. The lily pond is especial lovely! Great place for families. Just be careful to keep an eye on your really little ones. The lily pond is gorgeous but when we were there noticed how very dark the water is. Also had no protection to children from falling in. One afternoon while visiting there was a young mother... More

We always enjoy visiting the Botanic. There is always something new to see. The area is full of vintage homes, a delight to look at as you drive to the Gardens. In the Gardens themselves, we especially enjoy the big "Terrarium", the Orchid Room, the Asian Garden, and the Bible Garden. Parking is convenient and free. The gift shop is... More

We have a pass (good for a year) and try to go once a week. There are always new things to see. Great concert lineup too. The childrens' garden across the street is amazing. My toddler loves both the childrens' garden and the main garden.

The gardens are very beautiful, even in the winter. The orchid showcase is why I came tho. I made it a suprise on our trip being my wife loves orchids. It was a nice suprise. And we will be back to enjoy the outdoor part when it's spring/summer.

We had a wonderful time walking though the botanic garden on York St in Denver. It is an unusual set of plants and setup. Not all the gardens are outside, there are great displays inside also and there is a children's interactive garden. It is easy walking and we enjoyed the art work and their were plenty of places to... More

I like to visit the indoor tropical plants in the middle of winter. The many outdoor gardens are beautiful and change with the seasons. I love the annual plant sales and have taken several classes on various garden topics. The Botanic Gardens also have property near Chatfield Reservoir which is an old farm site. They have outdoor concerts at both... More

Had heard a lot about the botanical gardens but it didnt live upto my expectations. May be coz I had gone in late summer and the weather was not conducive. There were not much flowers in the garden and $15 ticket looked too steep for the experience it offered.

As a volunteer at DBG, I admit my bias. That said, it is a fabulous and vibrant attraction that does more for the community than meets the eye.
