Pretty place. Came at the wrong time of year though because there weren't flowers like I was hoping. Mostly shrubs and other greens. Smell was beautiful. The little ponds are gorgeous. Came on a Monday afternoon and it was so quiet there.

The Botanic gardens has something for all ages. Hands on activities for kids and great paths and walkways for adults. Beautiful from beginning to end. In door and outdoor plant life with loads of information attached. You can spend hours at this place and get lost in the tranquility of the atmosphere. I recommend this attraction for anyone visiting Denver... More

Summer winter spring fall, any time you go there will be new things blooming, indoors and out. The conservatory full of tropical plants, Marnies Pavilion has them too. There are West Coast Sequoias in the sensory garden. Every time I go I find something new.
