I spent an entire day wandering the many garden spaces at the Denver Botanic Gardens. A special treat were the numerous Deborah Butterfield horse sculptures. This place is magical.

Be sure to try the (salmon sandwich) SBLT!!! Beautiful, very relaxing, nice summer day. We were able to view all sorts of flowers and herbs and trees and plants without being harassed by screaming kids and people running craziness. It was very peaceful. It is worth the price of admission if you want to walk around and just enjoy the... More

After driving around Denver, dealing with traffic for two days, it was such a treat to be able to spend a few hours in this beautiful garden. It is true that there was quite a bit of damage from a recent hailstorm, but the volunteers were hard at work replanting so, as with all gardens, hope was very present. It... More

The wilderness planting style did not appeal to me. The plants were not consistently labeled. The whole front area seemed unkempt. The Japanese area in the back was perfection. Visit that for sure. Be warned. It says wheel chair accessible. but it is tough going. there are places with rough surface and ledges and steps and it is just difficult... More

The park has many curving, climbing, descending, happily sand, happily stone, happily unpaved walkways. Wonderful for children. Not so much for elderly with walkers and wheel chairs. It is sort of wheel-chair-accessible, if you are willing to turn around and back track when needed to avoid stairs and you don't mind the bumpy ride over cobblestones and the difficult threshold...

My wife always wanted to go to the Denver botanic gardens so we decided to make the trip. The gardens has a free parking garbage on the grounds. We always like to go through the Japanese gardens and Denver has one of the best we have seen. There is a pyramid style building which has hands on displays about Colorado.... More
