After spending some time at Rocky Mountain National Park and Garden of the Gods, we saw lots of rocks. But the Botanic Gardens was a beautiful stop in Denver with gorgeous flowers and the Chihuly exhibit. I highly recommend it for an afternoon (better than shopping!).

The gardens are very worth to visit. But the exposition of Chihuly you will never forget. So my advise go to the Gardens before the exposition has ended.

This is a once in a lifetime event and if you are anywhere near Denver you MUST put this on your list. The combination of the talented Dale Chihuly glass sculptures with the beautiful flowers and plants is breathtaking! The variety of plants and gardens is wonderful and the flow of the gardens from one to the other is very... More

We saw the Chihuly exhibit and it was exquisite! Beautiful gardens even if the Chihuly exhibit is over. Must see in Denver.

The Denver Botanic Gardens is the most beautiful attraction in Denver but even more so with the Dale Chihuly glass art exhibit. The myriad of glass exhibits are unique, colorful and blend in flawlessly with the surrounding fauna and flora.The exhibitions included in boats in the Japanese Gardens and the Monet Garden Pool are the most exquisite and beautiful.

I enjoy coming to the garden and really concentrate on one area. It ranges from Colorado grasslands to Bonsai to the tropics. There is a strong sense of water with lakes, streams, canals, pools, and waterfalls- great to experience on a hot summer day

I love a good botanical garden, and I did love this one! If you are able to visit while the Dale Chihuly glass sculpture exhibit is there....do it! He is a master at blending the color, shape and flow of the glass to blend with each specific garden. Very impressive! I posted lots of pictures...enjoy!

This place is charging $15.00 per head which I feel is way to much. OK, it's huge, has all kinds of plants, but is not well organized for viewing. The Gardens are actually a maze of paths, difficult to see exactly where you are at any given monent, and after awhile, all the plants seem to look the same. The... More

This is one of the best botanical gardens. I've seen a few including the one in NYC but really enjoyed this one with the kids. We decided to get the annual pass for $90 which should be well worth the money and gives you so good perks. Chihuly's glass sculptures were amazing.
