We like to go to the gardens every couple of months. No matter if its spring/summer with a lot in bloom or mid-winter with lots of brown, the gardens are always a relaxing experience. The landscaping is pleasing all year round and it is generally quiet and tranquil. The ponds are lovely. Its always nice to check out the greenhouses... More

We enjoy this Botanic gardens in all seasons. They succeed at making the grounds attractive, even when most plants are dormant. Enjoy the children's garden over the parking garage as well.

Peaceful place, it is worth to go and spend one or two hours walking through the flowers. The tropical forest is amazing!

A great place to “Get Away”. Quiet, beautiful and fun – a nice little haven within Denver that changes with the seasons. Winter is an especially nice time to go in the evening - spring is great in the afternoons, in the summer I like to visit early.

Based on the recent Trip Advisor reviews, the Denver Botanic Gardens seemed like a surefire winner. We did get free parking across the street. However, our senior admission fee of $9.50 seemed like a donation to the place. Just glad we didn't pay $12.50 each, or we would have felt really ripped off. The Chihuly exhibit mentioned by some was... More

A beautiful garden, tranquilly a perfect compliment, as you stroll throught the different areas that have been created and the variety of plants that has been gathered for our enjoyment you will start to feel your senses react. But not a winter visit to get your money's worth February is not the best time. We enjoyed the orchid exhibit but... More

It's fun to watch the changing of the seasons here. We have a membership and get our money's worth with spring plant sales, fall bulb sales, succulent sales, and Christmas lights. The food is reasonable and excellent, plus I love the gift shop. The Japanese gardens are our favorite place as it is very authentic. They also offer interesting classes.... More
