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.

What a gorgeous site for a casual wedding!!! We visited this venue in March as a potential for an August wedding. They had just completed a controlled burn and the barn was being resided. Not a great way to select the ideal location. However, we had seen pictures on their website from previous weddings that were splendid and were assured... More

This is a lovely park, but doesn't feel anything like the Botanic Gardens downtown. The concerts here are very fun, and so easy to get to from C470.

Great Venue for a concert/Show...Open Festival Seating, Trees naturally frame the stage-semi amptheater effect on terraced grass field...food and beverages available...even when sold out audience is great and acoustics good...View-foothills of the Rockies hard to beat.

Came here to explore it during a free day admission. It took 40 minutes to got here and didn't understand what the point of this area is. There is not anything close to a botanic garden. Next time we'll try the Botanic Garden in Denver at York St.

Set beside Chatfield State park, these gardens are both beautiful and relaxing. Hay rides, corn mazes, old farm houses and cottages, and even a petting zoo. You can rent out areas for birthdays and weddings too!

It was a lovely morning when we visits this attraction in Littleton. We toured the grounds, planted with mostly local varieties and then visited the new butterfly enclosure. A knowledgeable guide took us around. The butterflies were just warming up and starting to move from plant to plant. It is freshly planted and quite attractive. When it fills in, it... More

Very well done display of lights. A pleasant walk through the gardens with almost every tree wrapped in a plethora of lights of all colors, sizes. Interactive areas for youngsters and adults, warming hut available along the walk. Nice family holiday activity.

It was a cold night, but that wasn't about to stop the fun. It was so beautiful. They had a fire pit set up and they were also selling hot cocoa and candy. They also have a warming hut, which is also,where the kids can do a craft. We also took a hayride. Lots of fun!

I don't have kids, but the Botanic Gardens at Chatfield kind of makes me wish I did. We visited during the pumpkin festival, which involves live music, kids' games, food trucks, and pumpkin picking. The grounds of the gardens are quite nice, with views of mountains all around. There is a small farm area with goats and ponies, nice walking... More
