Maybe one of the best Botanic Gardens in the U.S. Many special exhibits and events. Music concerts in the summer. The Chihully glass exhibit the ended last fall was just spectacular. Worth a visit while in Denver

Beautiful gardens and displays. We went during the CHIHULY exhibit. That was so pretty. The garden displays and flowers are very nice. The have many exhibits during the year. They also have a Christmas one I want to attend. Indoor and outdoor gardens. A cute little outdoor garden terrace cafe and gift shop too!

Nice lights at Christmas, especially the silo and barn. some paths were a little too dimly lit. We got cold and didn't stay long.

if one enjoys critters, especially birds, then you will enjoy your outing at DBC at Chatfield. geese galore, ducks aplenty, coyotes here and there, perhaps a deer or fox too. room for the kids to roam too.

Great display of blown glass art situated in a garden. Lots of lights so try and visit at night if you can take the cold. If it gets too cold you can go inside one of the green houses.

This is a beautiful, seasonal display that is a wonderful way to end a day or weekend with friends and family. The lighting is beautiful and you must be certain to visit the playground area where the lights are synced with the music. End the walk with hot cocoa around the fire and don't miss touring the shotgun-style ranch house!... More

The Trail of Lights is a great experience! They have over 1 million lights up in their display. ..it is really wonderful. They have some warming huts if it is cold and some refreshments if you want some treats.

No matter what time of year you visit, the variety of the gardens never stop. It is such fun to take the kids out to run the. Ron maze in fall and experience the quieter time of natur when lush and vibrancy settles down to grasses in their fall splendor and shrieking kids noisily make their way through the maze.... More

I've been a member of the Denver Botanic Gardens for the last 2 years. Although I only get to the York Street location a few times a year, I visit the Gardens at Chatfield on almost a monthly basis. Chatfield does not offer the flowers you'll find at York Street, it offers a more relaxed atmosphere with a great place... More

Checked this little gem out whilst in downtown Denver. Very beautiful, well organized gardens, with a lot of character! Especially enjoyed the oriental garden section.
