You can see such a variety of Colorado plants you might have otherwise not know existed. Great area to walk or take in a small concert.

Denver Botanic Gardens impresses me with its ability to incorporate flora from around the globe into a display that of course showcases North American plants. Examples from South Africa, Japan and the tropics are among the grasslands, alpine gardens, pine gardens, herb gardens, desert southwest and multiple multiple flowering plants spring to fall. Interspersed are rotating sculptural exhibits which bring... More

We always find ourselves here during the Christmas season as they light up the gardens with hundreds of thousands of lights. Beautiful gardens and extra special summer concerts make this a highlight of Denver

I had a friend visiting from out of town and we spent several hours walking around enjoying everything the gardens have to offer. There is everything from an Asian zen garden to a large greenhouse with tropical plants. Would definitely recommend on a trip to Denver.

The Denver Botanic Gardens is a wonderful respite from urban life. The Japanese gardens are especially beautiful and meaningful. There is always an interesting event or exhibit to catch your attention. The gift shop has very unique items. I am proud to be a member.

Sometimes when I have the winter blues, I take a ride to Denver to visit the Botanical Gardens. The large greenhouse is gently humid and smells of the tropics and green plants. There are benches inside in case you want to sit a bit and enjoy the sounds of the water running through the structure. In the summer the outdoor... More

Whether it is a music event or the holiday decorations, this place is so special. There must be so much that happens behind the scenes to keep this special place so SPECIAL. Whatever reason you would go, you will be pleased.
