I love the botanic gardens almost anywhere, but the Denver Botanic Gardens delivers crowd arousing events. Last year's Chihuly exhibit was absolutely beautiful by day but especially by night and the summer concert series are not only some of the greatest artists but it becomes a gastronomical event. I enjoy the Chatfield and York Street locations. We are extremely lucky... More

Love to see the changing seasons. there is always something new to see and variations on the seasonal themes. The special events are well thought out and beautifully executed. Check out the concerts in the Park, long a Denver favorite summer activity. Book early, because most of these sell out. Excellent facilities for handicap, and the paths are pretty easy... More

We went for the Chihuly art display and it was great! The colors of the flowers and plants were amazing as they were displayed with the art. Lots to see and enjoy. It is a great place to visit any time of the year. During Christmas it is all lit up and beautiful. During summer you can attend outdoor concerts.... More

I took my wife here for the Christmas lightening and we found it to be truly an amazing treat. We walked around and looked at lights, bought warm apple cider, listened to a couple Christmas songs being song. It was like being serenaded on a romantic stroll. It was just simply relaxing for us. Only con I have is parking.... More

We saw the Dale Chihuly exhibit, & it was amazing! Even on a cloudy, overcast day, the glass sculptures were dazzling in their form, color, & presence.

We have been Botanic Garden members for 30 plus years and it is getting more beautiful year by year. The Chihuily exhibit was wonderful day and nighttime. We go different times of the day, all through the year. Plan some time to bring a lunch in and sit and enjoy the fragrance and the sights. The construction that was so... More

The Botanic Gardens are just a delight. I would recommend spending a few hours there, walking, sitting, meditating. I have seen it in the Spring and the Winter as well with all the lights.

DBG is its own little peaceful world in the middle of a big busy city. We recently visited to see the Chihuly Exhibit in November and decided to bring our 16 year old nephew. We all had recently seen Chihuly at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens and were curious to see the differences between the two. We really enjoyed the... More
